Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast

Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Matt Metz. Based in Alfred, NY he makes black porcelain pots that are covered with slips and carved through to reveal patterns in low relief. Over more than three decades he has developed a personal iconography that includes floral, geometric and figurative imagery. In our interview we talk about the value of solitary work, methods for evolving within a studio practice, and making a living as a potter. For more information on Matt visit www.schallergallery.com. This episode also features a mini interview with Brian Jones about the relaunch of his ceramic podcast The Jonescast. For more information visit www.jonescast.com.

 

This episode of the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler is sponsored by Omnus Terra. The exhibition invites seven Australian and seven American artists, including former podcast guests Vicki Grimma, Shannon Garson, Jane Sawyer and Linda Fahey, to create a dialogue between the two cultures through a shared connection to clay. Like the scientific expeditions of the great explorers, “Omnus Terra” reaches out to far flung nations bringing a cargo of exotic, mysterious, and mesmerising objects to a foreign shore. The artists explore their landscape, ceramic history and culture, questioning the historical tropes of the ceramic medium through form and material. The exhibition will take place at Gallery 114 in Portland, OR, March 22-25 in conjunction with the 2017 NCECA conference. For more information please visit www.yondershop.com and look for the Omnus Terra link.

Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Shoko Teruyama. Her colorful earthenware pottery features drawings of vines, floral motifs, and narrative characters depicting personal experiences and folklore. She uses the vessel as a canvas for her drawings and says, “Many of the forms allude to function and would serve food well, but are more comfortable being placed in sacred spaces of the home like the center of a formal dining room table, a hope chest, or a bedside stand.” In the interview we talk about Shinto temple architecture, her approach to pattern and using fictional characters to embody personal experiences.

Teruyama was raised in Mishima, Japan and has lived in the United States since 1997. She has been a resident artist at the Penland School of Craft and has an MFA from Wichita State University. You can find out more about her work at www.shokoteruyama.com.
