Since 2016, Ceramics Monthly reorganized the content in their magazine. One of the changes included adding a section called Studio Visits. This a fantastic section that highlights daily lives of artists as well as their education and their training.
It's important for students to understand that in order for an artist (of any medium) to survive, the artist must be able to combine art with industry. The artist must constantly refine their craft, stay current, network with the community and afar, and even go as far as reinvent themselves if necessary.
Making art is not only great, but it's often an overshadowed necessity of life. We humans are the only creatures on this planet that think abstractly, construct with a purpose (along with making tools to aid in construction), and value the esthetic of whatever is constructed beyond the functional purpose. Art also represent the finer things in life. All of this makes the industry of art indispensable.
