Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Mandy Kolahi. She co-founded POT, a community studio in Los Angeles, to create a safe space for artists of color and other marginalized groups to work in ceramics. In our interview we talk about how the founding principles of equality guided the growth of the studio, how they have pivoted their programming since the pandemic, and how studios like POT can break the opportunity cycle for the next generation of artists.

They have launched a Go Fund Me campaign to help them keep their doors open for the next six months. For more information visit www.gofundme.com/f/help-pot.
