Crafts. In our September/October issue, we meet makers partnering with nature in fascinating ways. Japanese artist Kazuhito Takadoi tells us about weaving with harvested grasses and branches, German wood turner Ernst Gamperl discusses his ten-year tribute to one gargantuan oak tree, and we discover a new breed of designers using biomaterials to grow textiles for the wardrobe of the future. Meanwhile, to mark the 10th anniversary of the British Ceramics Biennial in Stoke-on-Trent, Crafts asked V&A director Tristram Hunt to assess the revival of ceramics in the city, the challenges the industry still faces and what should happen next. Elsewhere, our columnists bring marginalised female makers into the spotlight, with Glenn Adamson arguing for the importance of women-only exhibitions and Tanya Harrod rewriting a historical wrong. Stories about women’s labour, sexuality and migration are also brought into sharp relief in a dazzling series of textile photograms.

Certainly marked by the work of Jacques Lacan, much as by the writing on Jacques Lacan, lacanian ink has been going for 19 consecutive years. And lacanian ink belongs in NYC, it was born here, it is done here. In this particular sense I was happy to realize how, together with a number of other journals, lacanian ink has been a witness to contemporary culture in the last decade. Today, there are few of them that continue. Bomb and lacanian ink are two of them. "If I am anything in the picture it is always in the form of a screen."
