This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with artist-designer Linda Fahey. After art school Linda's career veered in and out of the corporate world before she devoted herself full time to studio work in 2010. In recent years she has developed a body of hand-built ceramic forms that are decorated with nautical themes, linear drawings, and floral patterns. She sells her work through a variety of venues, including large retailers like Anthropologie, and smaller atelier shops scattered around the West Coast.


In the interview we talk about the value of obsessive routines, wholesaling in the design market, and Linda's love of the ocean. Building on her business background she recently opened a small design store called Yonder in Pacifica, CA.
