Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Mark Pharis. Known for his striking geometric vessels, Pharis has developed a system for slab building soft forms using templates and computer aided drafting. In the interview we talk about the influence of Warren Mackenzie, understanding the “inside hand” in ceramics and developing atmospheric surfaces for the electric kiln. In addition to his studio practice, Pharis is a Professor of Art at the University of Minnesota, where he has been teaching since 1985. For more information on Pharis please see his feature article in the November 2015 issue of Ceramics Monthly.
