This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist and educator Shoji Satake. His mixed media sculpture combines cast ceramic forms with found objects that are reminiscent of flowers growing from a rocky landscape. Now the head of the ceramics department at West Virginia University Satake directs their Morgantown campus as well as their long standing study abroad program in Jingdezhen, China.


In the interview we discuss his early work in politics, the evolution of WVU's ceramics program, and the social media projects that spring from his often humorous and subversive brand of social commentary. For more information on Satake's work please visit
