This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist David Hiltner. His functional pottery and sculpture references the farming landscapes of the midwestern United States. He says of his work "I am interested in rural landscapes, silos, rolling hills, and furrowed fields. The patterns, textures, and colors translated into the vessel are memories, moments, and thoughts frozen by fire. These vessels are created to celebrate the land that inspires and sustains me."

In the interview we talk about his recent exploration of corn as a symbol for commodization, his love of the great outdoors, and his experience founding the Red Lodge Clay Center. In 2005 he left his position as an Associate Professor at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas to create a full service clay center in Red Lodge Montana. The clay center has grown to include an artist-in-residence program, gallery, and community clay classes. For more information please visit
