Athens, GA area potter Carter Gillies passed away a few weeks ago. After discovering his blog in the early 2010’s I started to think of him as our potter philosopher. He wrote about both the everyday and extraordinary aspects of an artist's life often leaving nuggets of wisdom for his readers. This episode is a rearing of our 2014 interview where we talk about Carter's background in philosophy, his theory about the five stages of learning, and how selling online changes the way artists take risks in their studio. You can find more about his work and read through the archive of his blog at www.cartergilliespottery.wordpress.com.
