Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Ann Shaner. Along with her husband David Shaner, she was instrumental in the success of the Archie Bray Foundation during the late 1960’s. In our interview we talk about teaching 35 years in the public schools, her time at the Archie Bray Foundation, and moving to Big Fork, MT, where she and David raised their four kids. To read more about Ann’s experience check out the “Wives” article she and Gertrude Ferguson wrote in Vol. 20 No. 1 of The Studio Potter journal
