Early life[edit]

Born in New York City, Slivka obtained her degree in English from Hunter College in 1941.[3]

Work on Craft Horizons[edit]

Slivka is notable for shifting Craft Horizons magazine away from technical articles towards more professional and critical writing that included contributions from many outside the field.[1] While serving as editor-in-chief at Craft Horizons, Slivka published The New Ceramic Presence in 1961, which the American Craft Council called "groundbreaking."[4]
