This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with studio potter and gallery owner Alleghany Meadows. Known for his functional pottery he has exhibited across the United States and lectured in numerous venues including the Penland School of Crafts, Alfred University, and the Archie Bray Foundation. In addition to his studio career he is a founding partner of the Harvey Meadows Gallery, the Art Stream Nomadic Gallery and the Studio for Arts and Works.
Along with his academic training Alleghany apprenticed with Japanese potter Takashi Nakazato and was a recipient of the Thomas J. Watson Foundation Fellowship, which allowed him to spend a year doing a field study of traditional potters in rural Nepal. In the interview we talk about the value of being immersed in another culture and keeping studio time a priority in the midst of a busy family and business life.

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast, I have an interview with Garth Clark. A noted critic, provocateur, and advocate for ceramics, Clark founded the Garth Clark Gallery with his partner Mark Del Vecchio in 1981. Over the next three decades the gallery became the flagship for contemporary ceramics in America. Clark has authored more than 60 books on ceramics and lectured at over 100 major venues including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum, London, and the Sorbonne University, Paris. His newest project CFile is an online periodical highlighting the role of ceramics in art, design, architecture, and technology.
In the interview we talk about his early life as a journalist, the evolution of ceramics in the gallery world, and the founding of CFile. For more information please visit www.cfileonline.org.
