Venerable Australian potter Ivan Englund has recently passed away. Englund worked with fellow potters Mollie Douglas, Peter Rushforth, and (the late) Ivan McMeekin in the early 1960s to talk about pottery. They developed the first publication of Pottery in Australia in 1962.
According to Englund: "We wanted to make pottery our life work and career".
The Journal of Australian Ceramics will feature a tribute to Ivan in the first issue of 2008.
