Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Sana Musasama. Spanning more than four decades, Sana’s career has been a blend of art making, teaching, and activism. In our interview we talk about how her travels across West Africa in the 1970s set her on a path to understanding other cultures through art making. We also discuss her activism and why it is important to make joyous objects in light of world events. In addition to her art practice, she has taught at many art institutions including Hunter College, City College of New York, and John Jay College in New York City.

I’m happy to announce that I’ll be jurying The Clay Center of New Orleans upcoming exhibition “Less is More”. This juried exhibition is open to ceramic vessels, sculptures, and wall-mounted works, and celebrates earthenware clay and low-fire surface techniques.
