Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I talk with Takuro Shibata, a working potter and Director of STARworks Ceramics in Star, NC. In our interview we talk about settling in North Carolina after a degree in chemical engineering and a ceramic apprenticeship in Japan, and developing an aesthetic using local materials fired in a wood kiln. We also discuss his forthcoming book Wild Clay: Creating ceramics and glazes from natural and found resources , which he coauthored with Hitomi Shibata and Matt Levy.
