Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Caroline Cheng. A noted artist and curator, Cheng has recently expanded her practice into environmental design through the Yi Design Group. The company turns recycled ceramic material from Jingdezhen into architectural products. In our interview we talk about launching a design start-up, addressing the issue of ceramic waste, and the evolution of The Pottery Workshop. Cheng is the Executive Director of the art center, which promotes ceramics throughout China, and has studios in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Dali and Jingdezhen.
