This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist and educator Joe Bova. Using biomorphic and zoomorphic subject matter, Joe creates hollow formed ceramic sculpture that serves as a vehicle for political, social and mythical narratives. His work has been widely exhibited in hundreds of group shows and more than fifteen major solo exhibitions spanning his decades-long ceramic career. In addition to his studio work Joe was active in the classroom from 1969-2007, when he was an integral part of building the ceramic programs at Nichols State University, Louisiana State University and Ohio University.

 

In the interview we talk about building a ceramic program in higher education, developing a deft touch in clay, and the erotic nature of creativity. For more information on his work please visit www.joebova.com.

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with artist and educator Holly Hanessian.  Her most recent work Touch in Real Time explores the intimate nature of physical contact and its significance in the digital age. Part research and part social engagement Holly asks strangers to shake hands with a small amount of clay between them. This creates an object that concretizes an otherwise temporal experience. In the interview we talk about the value of touch and its foundation in neuroscience, incorporating new technologies into her clay work, and the difference between art and research . For more information about Holly please visit www.hollyhanessian.com.
