Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Greg Barron. In the 1970’s he started building his own ceramic processing equipment to make plastic clays for use in his studio. He applied this same ingenuity to build an energy efficient home and studio in Whangarei, NZ, that is made from compressed adobe and other ceramic materials. In our interview we talk about the effect deregulating ceramic imports had on New Zealand studio potters in the mid 1980’s, how his priorities have shifted over time, and his do-it-yourself philosophy for running a business. For more information on Greg visit


This interview is part of a series taped in New Zealand in April and May of 2018. I want to send a special thank you to the Ceramics Association of New Zealand for their support in making the series. To join the association, or to subscribe to their journal Ceramics New Zealand, visit
