Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Walter Ostrom. Originally recorded in the summer of 2015 this interview is being rebroadcast in celebration of Clay Week. I made a playlist featuring five archival releases that relate to the themes of Clay Week. This episode fits with Teaching Tuesday. Through his almost forty-year teaching career at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design he upheld functional ceramics as a conceptually rich medium that deserved equal footing in academia. One of the early adopters of earthenware Maiolica pottery in North America, Walter has been a major influence on generations of ceramic artists.

On today’s Amaco Community Corkboard we have Clay Week Open Studio, an international outreach event that celebrates clay, community, and creativity. Join us this weekend October 9-11, 2020 for virtual demonstrations, lectures, and online sales that are happening across the U.S. To find out more about Open Studio visit www.clayweek.org/openstudio.
