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. Join host Ben Carter as he talks with his favorite artists about their creative practice.
In this latest edition, Carter speaks with artist Matt Wedel.
He uses a gestural sculpting style and vibrant glazes to create ambitious large-scale works around the themes of the figure, landscape, and what he calls “Flower Trees”. In the interview we talk about keeping up with the speed of his imagination, understanding color and surface, and the place of ceramics in the art world.
