Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview about the Studio Potter with Jill Foote-Hutton and Jessica Detweiler. Established in 1972 the Studio Potter has been active in documenting the growth of American studio ceramics. In our interview we discuss the move into a digital format for the journal and the opportunities this presents for the organization. We also discuss equity in organizations, nonprofit funding options, and the Grants for Apprenticeship program. For more information visit www.studiopotter.org.
On today’s Amaco Community Corkboard we have the POT LA New Year’s Day Sale. POT is a full-service studio owned and operated by artists of color with a mission to create a “space that felt accessible and empowering for those that felt marginalized in ceramic spaces.” Due to the pandemic POT LA needs your help while transitioning to online programming. On January 1st leaders in the ceramic arts will be selling work and donating 100% of the proceeds to the organization under the hashtag #SupportPOTLA. Please help us in reaching the goal of raising $5,000 to keep this important space going! You can follow them on Instagram at @pot_la and support them directly at www.Patreon.com/POTLA.
Hey Red Clay Rambler fans, it’s been a wild year, and I want to thank you for spending your time with me, listening to world-class artists speak about their lives and creativity. It’s an honor to do this work, and I appreciate you choosing to listen week in and week out. As we wrap up 2020, I need your help funding future episodes. I’m not on a major network like NPR or Gimlet. I am a one-man operation, and I depend on the support of my listeners to keep the show going. I know this year has been tough for many folks, so for our Fall Fund Drive I’m keeping my request simple. I ask that if you are able, you commit four dollars a month to the show. That’s only a dollar an episode to keep you inspired and connected to the greater ceramic community. I’ve got big plans for 2021 and your support now can help make those plans a reality.
