Today on the show I talk with Haakon Lenzi. A life-long New Yorker, Haakon makes slipware pots from his studio in East Harlem. In our interview we talk about marbleizing slip on the surface of a pot, sustaining a career in the city, and the value of community building through sales and tours. Haakon has participated in the Hudson Valley Pottery tour since its beginning. You can find him this weekend October 21st and 22nd as a guest of Doug Peltzman for the 7th annual HVP tour. To see examples of his work visit


I’m excited to be cohosting a live taping of this podcast, with Carole Epp and Marianne Chenard of the Kiln Sitters, this Friday October 20th at the New Clay Conference in Ottawa, ON. If you are in the Ottawa area, come on out to the conference and say hello at the taping. I’ll be demonstrating at the conference, as well as showing work, so I hope to see you there.
