Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Danish ceramic artist Nina Hole. Her monolithic pieces are equal parts sculpture and performance art. With the help of building teams she constructs towering forms that are fired in place and unveiled at their peak temperature. Her "fire sculptures" have been built in a variety of environments including both urban and rural settings in Mexico, Denmark, Australia, the U.S. and many other countries.

In the interview we talk about the role religious architecture plays in inspiring her forms and the development of an easily mobile building/firing process. We also discuss the Museum of International Ceramic Art-Grimmerhus and the Danish ceramic residency Guldagergaard, both of which she had an instrumental role in starting. For more images of her work please visit www.ninahole.com

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.
