Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I delve into the relationship between food, objects, and memory. The episode features fifteen short interviews with a mixture of artists, curators, and collectors. All participants were asked, "What is your favorite food, and how would you like it to be served?" Their responses, both hilarious and sincere, show how eating rituals are foundational to building relationships with family and friends. The interviews were taped as part of the ArtKamp residency at Project Art in Cummington, MA.

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Mary Barringer and Elenor Wilson. Although both are accomplished ceramic artists our interview is focused on their tenures as editor for the The Studio Potter journal. Established in 1972 The Studio Potter has had an active role in documenting and shaping the American pottery scene. 

In the interview we talk about the history of the journal, balancing editorial duties with an artistic life, and the impact digital media has had on The Studio Potter. For more information, or to subscribe to the journal, please visit www.studiopotter.org.
