This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with potter Mark Shapiro. After an early career as a carpenter and metal sculptor Shapiro has been a dedicated studio potter for almost thirty years. He continues to fire the wood kiln he built shortly after moving from New York City to Worthington, MA in 1986. In the interview we talk about the virtue of handmade, questioning the "ethical" pot, and Mark's efforts to establish and document an apprenticeship system for potters.
