Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a discussion with Kathy Erteman. Her ceramic vessels and architectural wall pieces read as modernist paintings that have been stretched into three-dimensional form. They have been shown internationally and are included in public collections such as the Renwick Gallery/Smithsonian Institute, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Taipei Museum of Fine Arts and SC Johnson Collection. In addition to her fine art work she has designed a variety of ceramic wares for Tiffany, Dansk and Crate & Barrel.
In the interview we talk about modernism, her experience designing for industry and her ongoing relationship with Nixi Potters from the remote mountains of Yunnan, China. For more information about Kathy please visit www.kathyerteman.com.
