Today on the show I talk with Renata Cassiano. Her ceramic sculptures are non-objective accumulations often dealing with ideas of connection and translation. In our interview we talk about reusing older work to create new forms, using a concrete saw to shape fired ceramics, and the influence of literature on her understanding of self and art. Cassiano is currently the Visiting Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Arkansas School of Art. To see examples of her work visit

A few weeks ago, my friend Paul (@pdblais) crushed his eye while wake surfing in the Columbia River. It was a freak accident where the board hit him at just the wrong spot. There’s a Go Fund Me to help he and his wife over the next few months. If you are a fan of his podcast The Potters Cast this is a great time to show your support. Visit Go Fund Me to donate.
