This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist Caroline Cheng. Her "Prosperity" series combines miniature hand made porcelain butterflies and historical Chinese fashion styles to create contemporary sculpture. Along with the "Prosperity" series she also specializes in functional wood and soda fired tea ware. As the director of the Pottery Workshop she has created a multifaceted ceramic organization that encourages the exchange of technology and aesthetics between east and west. The organization has four locations in China that feature multiple education centers, galleries and an international artist residency.
In the interview we discuss the history of the Pottery Workshop, balancing two separate bodies of work, and her recent experience working as a designer for the jewelry brand Van Cleef and Arpels.
