Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a discussion with figurative sculptor Wesley Anderegg. Based in the Santa Rita Hills of northern Santa Barbara County, Anderegg uses ceramic figures to weaves narratives that are both primal and complex in their approach to emotion. His simplified ceramic forms are placed in tableaus that range from the mythical to the mundane in order to show the full range of the human experience. In the interview we talk about using humor to address the dark side of life, being creative in lean financial times, and the art of making wine.

This episode of the podcast is sponsored by Sierra Nevada College. Come be inspired by the gorgeous, natural setting of Lake Tahoe, while studying with nationally known artists in a variety of art mediums. This summer continues a tradition of excellence in art education that has been going strong for 32 years. This year’s line up includes Adam Field, Ronan Kyle Peterson, John Toki, Nancy Servis, and many more. I’m also excited to announce that I will be teaching a hands on workshop on Perfect Pouring Pots July 23rd and 24th.
