Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Ashleigh Christelis. Based in Johannesburg, SA Christelis’s career includes a variety of ceramic bodies of work and long-term teaching of ceramic classes in her local community. In the interview we talk about learning through apprenticeship, how COVID 19 has affected Johannesburg, and balancing work with the need for rest and self-care. We also address the complications of living with rheumatoid arthritis and bipolar disorder. For more information visit www.ashleighchristelisceramics.com.
On today’s Amaco Community Corkboard we have the Ceramic Arts Reading Group. The group seeks mud artists of all stripes, from the glaze riffraff to the iron rabble, to form a ceramic arts reading group for women and non-cis gender men. This monthly reading group will be dedicated to creative, lively, and intellectually rigorous art theory discussions. The group chooses texts and material that are directly relevant and meaningful to the personal art practices of the members. They encourage you to join them to share and unravel ideas! Plant the metaphorical seed and hatch the allegorical egg! For more information on the reading group you can write to them at firstname.lastname@example.org (that's ceramic arts, with an 's').
