Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a panel discussion with Sarah Jewell Olsen, Kelly Lynn Daniels, Hiromi Iyoda, Emily Connell, and Wen-Dan Lin. The five are currently resident artists at the Belger Arts Center’s Red Star Studios in Kansas City, MO. During our conversation, we talk about the pros and cons of quick evolutions in the studio, readjusting career expectations, and the clay community in Kansas City. To find out more about the Red Star Residency visit www.redstarstudios.org.

Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Jessica Brandl. Her vessels are covered with drawings of rural American landscapes, abandoned architecture, and the flora & fauna of the environments she is investigating. In our discussion, we talk about the influence of Gothic novels and her use of the literary formula - subject, object, place - in shaping the content of her work. To see examples of her ceramics, visit jessicabrandl.com.
