Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler I have an interview with Bill Griffith and Peter Beasecker. Together they coordinate the Utilitarian Clay Symposium, held every four years to celebrate utilitarian clay objects. In our interview we talk about the first UC held in 1992, the value of handmade in our time, and memorable presenter stories from past symposiums.

This episode is the first of a series recorded at UC7 held in Gaitlinburg, TN in the fall of 2016. To start the series we have a special guest appearance by Bill May, the director of Arrowmont. We discuss the recent wildfires that destroyed sections of Gatlinburg and the Arrowmont campus.
