Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Jamie Bates Slone. She draws from her own experience with mental illness to create figurative sculpture that addresses disease and resilience. In our interview we talk about the psychology of color, how body positioning in sculpture can create empathy, and being a role model for young women. Slone is an assistant professor at the University of Oklahoma, which has a department of three professors dedicated to teaching figure sculpture. For more information visit
