This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist Tommy Frank. His current body of sculptural work uses the childhood piggy bank to address consumption and power in the American economy. His pig armies fill gallery spaces asking the viewer to question how we teach children the value of hoarding in our society.  In addition to his studio practice Frank is the studio manager of Red Star Studios in Kansas City, MO.

In the interview we talk about pop culture, masculinity, and the growth of Red Star Studios. You can see more of Tommy's work at www.frankarts.com. For more information on Red Star Studios please visit www.redstarstudios.org
