Vicki Grima lives in Sydney, Australia, close to many beautiful beaches, and her favourite place to spend time. She started off teaching visual arts, for the first 15 years to secondary students then to teachers with whom she could share her passion for integrating visual arts through the whole curriculum. Over the decades she has developed her own arts practice, enjoying 14 years as a member of a co-operative ceramics gallery in Sydney in the ‘90s.
In 2005, Vicki took on dual positions with The Australian Ceramics Association (TACA), as Executive Officer and Editor of The Journal of Australian Ceramics (JAC). This challenging job involves working with a diverse, dynamic membership of over 1500 studio potters, print and web publishing, along with event and exhibition management. Vicki is in daily contact with the ceramics community, nationally and internationally. Her focus is to represent the diversity of ceramics practice in Australia through The JAC and offer support to the sector via TACA’s membership services. In this rapidly changing digital world the challenge is to maintain relevance to the new ways of working, whilst also honouring the rich history of ceramics practice in Australia.
