This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast, I have an interview with Ron Meyers. Known for his highly decorated terra cotta forms, Ron has been a major influence in American low fire ceramics. He uses expressive painting and sgraffito drawing to create images of fish, birds, and other animal motifs that often have human characteristics. During his extensive career in ceramics he has taught at the University of South Carolina (1967-1972) and the University of Georgia (1972-1993). He lives in Athens. Ga where he maintains a studio and exhibits widely in the United States. 


In the interview we talk about finding one's voice as a maker, the development of his "usual suspects" characters, and how retiring from teaching energized his ceramics career. You can find Ron's work online at the Signature Shop, AKAR, and Red Lodge Clay Center.
