Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Wesley Brown. He combines thrown forms with thick slabs to make sculptures and pottery that feels monumental both in their emotion and scale. In our interview we talk about his methods of building, finding a unifying surface, and teaching at East Stroudsburg University, where he is a Fredrick Douglas Scholar. He has a show on display until March 3rd at ESU’s Madelon Powers Gallery. To see examples of his work, visit www.wesleytbrown.com.


NCECA will be hosting their first ever podcast room at this year’s conference in Cincinnati. Thursday March 16th and Friday March 17th there will be six hour-long live tapings of popular ceramic podcasts. I’ll be hosting an episode titled Taking an Environmental Approach to Making with Marianne Chénard, Julia Galloway, and Ché R.
