We periodically feature the work of studio potter and fellow ceramics journalist Ben Carter, who hosts the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler podcast, which includes interviews with artists and culture makers from around the world.
In this recent episode, Carter speaks with ceramic artist Adam Chau, who just had a solo show SENT: Adam Chau (June 25 – August 2, 2020) at The Clay Studio, where he employed a digital calligraphy process to imprint on his ceramics.
Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Adam Chau. Blending the machinery of industry with an interest in handcraft, Adam has created a digital calligraphy process which he uses to decorate tiles and vessels. In our interview we talk about developing mechanical mark-making processes, his Screenshot series investigating our evolving relationship with mobile devices, and his most recent show Sent, which revolves around the paradox of the anonymous selfie. To find out more about his work visit www.adamchau.com. We also discuss the reemergence of the Color Network, a group dedicated to aid in the advancement of people of color in the ceramic arts.
