Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Doug Casebeer. Throughout his long career in ceramics Doug has focused on utilitarian pottery, while also teaching and serving as a ceramic consultant for the United Nations. For 34 years he served in a variety of roles at the Anderson Ranch Arts Center in Snowmass Village, Colorado, including Associate Director and Artistic Director for Ceramics. In our interview we talk about establishing a ceramic factory in Jamaica in the early 1980’s, his time at the Anderson Ranch Art Center, and why it’s important for artists to stay curious in their art practice. Doug splits time between his home in Carbondale, CO and being a teaching Artist in Residence at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK.

On today’s AMACO Community Corkboard we have the Cannon River Clay Tour, happening August 21-22nd. The tour is excited to be in-person this year. This free, self-guided tour features eighteen clay artists in the Northfield, MN area, just 40 miles south of Minneapolis. For more information visit www.cannonriverclaytour.com/.
