Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast we have a live episode that was taped as part of the Envision: Woodfire NC conference in May 2022. I’m joined by Steve Blankenbeker, Takuro Shibata, Josh Copus, and Hideo Mabuchi to talk about the discovery and use of locally dug clay. To find out more about the ceramic research being done at Starworks visit
