Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Sam Harvey. He came to Colorado’s Roaring Fork Valley to take a workshop at Anderson Ranch in the mid 1990’s, which began a long relationship that continues to this day including time as a studio coordinator, a board member, and an instructor. His studio practice includes pinched vessels that are decorated with geometric shapes and works on paper. In addition to his studio practice he has been a gallery director for more than a decade and has been instrumental in promoting ceramics in the Aspen, CO area. In our interview we talk about his relationship with Betty Woodman, surviving in the competitive Aspen art market, and what artists should focus on in order to have a successful career in ceramics.
