Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist Carole Epp. Her sculpture addresses social issues through the reconfigured forms of kitch figurines. She says of her work, "Cute on the surface, my work betrays its collectible figurine reference by subverting the idealist propaganda of historical figurines in exchange for the dark realities of contemporary humanitarian concerns."


In the interview we talk about her approach to social commentary, the darkness in her aesthetic and her excellent blog, Musing about Mud. For more information on her work please visit www.caroleepp.com. To view her blog please visit www.musingaboutmud.blogspot.com.

17: Jason Burnett on his youthful aesthetic and the image transfer trend in ceramics

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist Jason Bige Burnett. His colorful ceramics reference the illustrative style used to depict pottery in cartoons. Using screen-printing techniques Jason incorporates energetic patterns that give his pots a sense of youthful excitement. In the interview we talk about his aesthetic, the current image transfer trend in ceramics, and the yearly ceramic surface forum that he founded. He is currently an artist-in-residence at the Arrowmont School for Art and Craft. For more information on his work please visit www.jasonbigeburnett.com.
