Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Susan O’Byrne. Susan creates ceramic animal sculptures that convey the complex emotional landscape of human relationships. She sculpts around a wire armature using layers of paper clay before surfacing the forms with mosaic-like patterns. In the interview we talk about her building process, creating a life in Glasgow, Scotland, and how she used animals to represent family history in her traveling exhibition "The Five Sisters". For more information on Susan visit This interview was taped at the 2018 Ceramics Ireland International Festival in Thomastown, Kilkenny.


Hey Red Clay Rambler fans, thanks for listening to this episode and for supporting the show with your donations and iTunes comments. About a year ago I started using Patreon to create a sustaining membership campaign. It has been a great tool to raise funds, but I continue to need your help to meet my operating budget. If you can spare a few dollars a month I ask that you sign up at or give a one-time donation through the Pay Pal portal at Every dollar helps, and no donation is too small. Thanks for helping to keep this show on the air!
