Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Pete Pinnell. Pinnell is a long-time ceramic artist who has engaged the community through his numerous articles for Clay Times and his work as a professor at the University of Nebraska. In recent years he has focused on teapots, developing both high- and low-fire collections of his signature refined forms. In our interview we talk about simplifying complex ideas for students and re-finding your voice throughout your career. To see example of his work follow him on Instagram at @pete.pinnell.
