This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast we have a panel discussion with Nate Prouty, Adams Puryear, and Richard Nickel. We discuss comics, SciFi and the role the anti-hero persona plays in American culture. The wide-ranging discussion starts with the premise that we are in the midst of a major aesthetic shift in ceramic arts. Under the influence of contemporary graphic culture the age of "round and brown" ceramics has given way to brightly colored forms heavily influenced by the narrative structure and style of comics and SciFi.

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with potter Emily Reason. She is the quintessential "potter's potter" making beautifully designed utilitarian ware for the table. Her newest body of work draws on both Chinese and North Carolina ceramic traditions.
In the interview we talk about her ongoing relationship with China, the nuts and bolts of running a studio pottery, and her experience writing a book on ceramics. Reason wrote the excellent book Ceramics for Beginners: Wheel Throwing for Lark Books in 2010. For more information on her work please visit www.emilyreason.com.
