Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Walter Ostrom. A retrospective book has recently been published filled with essays from colleagues and images of his work dating back to the 1960’s. In our interview we talk about his early project-based work, the questions that motivated his decades long studio practice, and his love for cross breading Rhododendron. Good Earth: The Pots and Passion of Walter Ostrom is available now from your favorite book seller.
