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.

An accomplished vessel maker and sculptor, Lotz often uses geometric tessellations and modular units in his work. His work spans a variety of scales from intimate handheld pottery to four-foot tall sculptures. In the interview, we talk about cultivating patience while planning a new body of work, exploring the same content from multiple angles, and how teaching feeds his studio practice. Lotz is a professor of ceramics at Illinois State University in Bloomington, IL.
