Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Ryan Greenheck. His functional ceramics are influenced by European slipware and Chinese porcelain traditions. He maintains a studio in Philadelphia, PA and has been instrumental in starting invitational sales of functional ceramics in urban environments in the North East of the United States. In our interview we talk about evolving in the studio with the help of your peers, curating a sale to meet the needs of a community, and taking short term risks for long term financial gains.
