Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Brenda Quinn. Her vibrant functional pottery explores the line between hard and soft through the blending of architectural and floral elements. In the interview we talk about how a childhood phobia led her to practice mindfulness, methods for generating pattern, and helping her students understand the value of handmade goods. To see examples of her work, visit www.brendaquinn.com.
Hey Red Clay Rambler fans, in the lead up to this year’s NCECA conference in Minneapolis I want to support a few excellent exhibitions that you should attend. Roberto Lugo has curated at show at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN titled More Than That: Diversity within Diversity. The show brings artists of color together that work in a multiplicity of genres and forms that defy cultural expectations. Each member of the show creates work that is pushing the field of ceramics to engage with the communities in which artists find themselves. For more information visit wp.stolaf.edu/flaten.
