Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I talk with Lynn Duryea. Her minimalist sculptures are made from bent clay slabs, and are surfaced with layers of sprayed glaze giving them the appearance of aged metal. In our interview we talk about how the seaside architecture of her childhood hometown influences her ceramics, her role as a founding trustee of the Watershed Center for the Ceramic Arts, and the workshop for people living with HIV/Aids that she cofacilitated for thirteen years. She recently partnered with Franklin Brooks to publish a book on the importance of the workshop, chronicling its impact on participants and the community thirty years after its first session.
