Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Anat Shiftan. Her sculptures incorporate floral elements that are precariously arranged as a metaphor for the human perception of nature and our impact on the environment. In our interview we talk about her childhood and family history, historical depictions of nature, and retiring from teaching after twenty years at SUNY New Paltz. To see examples of her work visit
