Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Jason Sandy. He is a modern-day mudlark searching the foreshore of the Thames River in London. In our interview we talk about the history of London as a riverside city, the wide variety of objects that are found in the anaerobic mud of the Thames, and what these objects tell us about the eras they came from. We also discuss his newly published book Thames Mudlarking: Searching for London’s Lost Treasures. To find out more about Jason follow him on Instagram at www.instagram.com/jasonmudlark. You can purchase Thames Mudlarking in Europe now, and it will be released in the United States in April.
On today’s Amaco Community Corkboard we have the POT LA Go Fund Me campaign. POT is a full-service studio owned and operated by artists of color with a mission to create a “space that felt accessible and empowering for those that felt marginalized in ceramic spaces.” Due to the pandemic POT needs your help while transitioning to online programming. Help them in reaching their Go Fund Me goal to keep this important space going! To support them directly visit www.gofundme.com/f/help-pot.
