Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Kim Kirchman. A long time potter and educator, Kim is a professor of art at St. Petersburg College. Her recent altered vessel forms are decorated with underglaze drawings of botanical patterns that reference the lush environment of the Tampa Bay area. In the interview we talk about keeping it fresh in the classroom, the origins of the Tampa Tour de Clay, and how she utilized her aesthetic training to remodel homes and plan for retirement.
