The Journal of Australian Ceramics (JAC) is a valuable resource for professional and amateur ceramicists, teachers and students at all levels, galleries, arts administrators, curators, buyers and collectors.

The JAC is published three times per year – 1 April, 17 July and 20 November – and is available in both print and digital formats. Our 160 pages of full-colour content feature profiles on ceramicists, potters and makers; reviews of ceramic exhibitions and/or books; previews of upcoming events; critical reports and/or commentaries; research papers; and community reports. In each issue we choose a focus area as a way to source different and new stories, stories that make the reader think, and stories that challenge.

We aim to inspire, educate, address current issues, expose readers to new points of view and help readers to feel connected to the broader ceramics community.

Formerly known as Pottery in Australia (PIA), the magazine was first published in May 1962 (Vol 1, No 1). In 2022, The JAC will celebrate its 60th anniversary.

The Australian Ceramics Association (TACA) acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which we operate. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded and that we are on stolen land. We pay our respects to Indigenous Elders, past, present and emerging, and to any other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders who might encounter or participate in our Association, its events and programs.
