Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Kari Radasch. Known for her vibrant earthenware pottery, Kari is a prolific artist that has produced multiple varied, and successful, bodies of work in the last decade. Her current focus is to convey joy through vibrant color and surface patterning. She maintains a studio practice in Westbrook, ME while also teaching at the Maine College of Art in Portland, ME.

In the interview we talk about transitioning through aesthetic ideas, embracing sentimentality, and using emotion as a source for inspiration in ceramics. For more information on her work please visit www.kariradasch.com. Below you will see images that illustrate the three major bodies of work that Kari has worked on in the last decade.
