Podcasts focused only on the worlds of contemporary ceramic art and contemporary ceramics are too few and far between. We wanted to share with you one of our favorites — Tales of a Red Clay Rambler, brought to us by Ben Carter of Carter Pottery.
Each podcast features interviews with Carter’s favorite artists and culture makers from around the world. The latest podcast (released May 15, 2017) features interviews with Vicki Grima, Executive officer of the Australian Ceramics Association and editor of the Journal of Australian Ceramics; and Stephen Creech, cofounder of National Clay Week (October 13 -15, 2017) and the Director of Marketing at American Art and Clay Company. The focus of this week’s discussion centers around nation-wide open studio events that bring the public into ceramic artist’s studios as a form of outreach and education.
