Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Chotsani Elaine Dean and donald a clark. They co-authored the new book Contemporary Black American Ceramic Artists, which profiles thirty-eight contemporary artists working in clay. The book sheds light on the contributions and experiences of African Americans who continue to shape the ceramic history of the United States. The publication is available where fine books are sold.
