The Studio Potter Archives Travel to Their New Home
In the thirty-plus years of founding editor Gerry Williams’s time at The Studio Potter, he amassed an enormous archive of material relating to the 63 issues he edited. Manuscripts, working texts, correspondence, photographs, and audio tapes, as well as layout sheets (who out there remembers Letraset?) and other production drafts attest to the rich history gathered in our journal. These materials, about 50 boxes’ worth, have been in storage while we negotiated their final resting place. Earlier this year the Arizona State University Art Museum Ceramics Research Center ( www .asunews.asu.edu/20100817_StudioPotterarchives) in Tempe, AZ, agreed to be that place, and in July SP Board member Maureen Mills, along with New Hampshire potter Karen Orsillo, embarked on a cross-country road trip to deliver the archives to ASU.
It was the hottest July on record in the Northeast – a great time to be setting out for Arizona! The boxes just fit in Maureen’s van.
Along the way, Maureen and Karen saw some amazing scenery, compared regional coffee standards, and settled the art-craft question.
After 5 days on the road, they arrived at the Ceramics Research Center, which is on the campus of ASU and part of the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts. There the archives will be further inventoried, digitized, and made available to scholars of contemporary studio ceramics. Please visit www.herbergerinstitute.asu.edu/news for more information.
Thanks to Maureen and Karen for their heroic travels, and to the CRC for safeguarding this precious collection and making it a resource for the entire ceramic community.
