Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Kerianne Quick and Adam John Manley. Both are makers with studio practices steeped in craft, as well as professors of art in the Metals and Wood Departments at San Diego State University. In our interview we talk about their approach to materials, the concepts behind their recent bodies of work, and Craft Desert, a zine focused on craft in the Southwest that they co-edit. To find out more about the zine, visit www.craftdesert.org. To find out more about Kerianne visit www.kerianne-quick.com. To find out more about Adam visit www.adamjohnmanley.com.
On today’s AMACO Community Corkboard we have the Art Stream Nomadic Gallery Online Tour. In response to the cancellation of this year’s NCECA conference, the Art Stream has launched an online version of their usual cross-country tour featuring thirty-five of the top functional ceramic artists working today. You can shop the gallery from the comfort of your own home at www.shop.art-stream.com/.
