This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Patrick Coughlin. Anchored in a long time ceramic studio practice Patrick creates mixed media sculpture that looks at the history and value of labor across craft media. In a statement about his recent exhibition Tools of the Trade he says,  "My work is both elegy and ballad, aiming to depict the hidden beauty and value in the knowledge of process, and the joy of committing it. The act of making becomes a performance of my own heritage; working with dirt, tool and sweat of brow." In the interview we talk about developing a body of work post graduate school, the need for craft mastery in art education, and the social history of pattern.
