This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with American ceramic artist Dryden Wells. He utilizes molds to make multiple casts of an object which then serve as building blocks for his sculptural forms. He says of his recent work, "The multiples I am using are specifically segments of animals made with both hand-built and mold made forms. By fragmenting and stacking them, I am trying to obscure the initial subject and capture the evidence of a space and motion."

 

In the interview we talk about the role of intuition in his creative process and his time managing the Pottery Workshop Design Studio in Jingdezhen China. To see more of Wells' work you can search for his profile on Access Ceramics or Art Axis.
