Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Brett Kern. His ceramic sculptures of dinosaurs and spacemen are tied to his love of collectable toys and pop culture nostalgia. In our interview we talk about making slip cast molds from the inflatables he creates, dealing with flippers who buy his work to resell on eBay, and his recent exhibition The Lost World. The yearlong exhibition at the Erie Art Museum featured sculptures of Rocky, E.T., and other 1980’s icons rendered in a Hellenistic style. For more information visit www.brettkernart.com.
On today’s Amaco Community Corkboard we have the Southern Crossings Pottery Festival. SXPF is a volunteer run non-profit with a focus on celebrating handmade pottery and the makers who nourish our lives and those around us. They have transitioned their festival to happen virtually this year March 5-7. In addition to this year’s sale the festival is also hosting a benefit raffle for Blessings in a Backpack working to feed children in the greater Louisville area. To join in these virtual events, visit www.SXPF.org.
