Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Mitchell Spain. Through meticulous craftsmanship he makes functional objects that appear to be rusted tin cans and farm detritus that has been stuck in a family barn since the Great Depression. In our interview we talk about addressing environmentalism through satirical imagery, refining a glaze that mimics rust, and how the pandemic has shifted his art practice. Mitchell’s work will be featured in the exhibition Mo Fauxs Part Deux at the Black Book Gallery July 25th 2020 with Brett Kern and Tim Kowalczyk. For more information visit www.blackbookgallery.com.

On today’s AMACO community cork board we have the Color Network, a group dedicated to aid in the advancement of people of color in the ceramic arts. Their aim is to assist artists develop, network, and create dialogue, while maintaining a place for resources and mentorship.
