Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Australian potter Shannon Garson. Her porcelain vessels are covered with sgraffito and oxide drawings inspired by the marginalized ecosystems of the littoral zone of seaside Queensland, such as shorelines, rock pools and coastal wallum scrub. In addition to domestic wares Garson has been mixing food, music and vessels into a performance piece/event called The Handmade Table. To see a video about the piece please visit her Vimeo page. For more information about her work please visit www.shannongarsonporcelain.com.au.
This episode of the podcast is the first in the Australia Week series, which is sponsored by the Australian Ceramic Association. Shannon currently serves as the president of this member-driven organization, which fosters a lively community by organizing nationwide open studio events, publishing The Journal of Australian Ceramics, supporting artists in their studio practice and advocating for excellence in education and training.
