This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Martha Grover. She creates gestural porcelain pots that reference botanical forms and the female body. She says of the work, "I think of the fluid visual movement around a piece, as a choreographer would move dancers across a stage. Transmitting desire - there is a sense of revealing and concealing, a layering of details that serves to catch our attention immediately and then the details draw us in, to make a closer inspection." She currently lives in Helena, MT where she is a full time potter and the education coordinator at the Archie Bray Foundation.
In the interview we talk about mining your own personal history for inspiration, finding a niche in the clay world, and traveling the workshop circuit. For more information on Martha's work please visit www.marthahgrover.com.
