Shoji Satake on clay, politics and his subversive brand of social commentary

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist and educator Shoji Satake. His mixed media sculpture combines cast ceramic forms with found objects that are reminiscent of flowers growing from a rocky landscape. Now the head of the ceramics department at West Virginia University Satake directs their Morgantown campus as well as their long standing study abroad program in Jingdezhen, China.

Matt Long on student teacher/relationships and starting a new body of work and

To celebrate the third year anniversary of this blog I am rolling out the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast. This podcast will consist of interviews with artists, writers, and musicians with an occasional special travel episode thrown in for good measure. The first episode features an interview with American potter Matt Long. Known for his functional porcelain pottery, Matt specializes in communal drinking vessels such as flasks, bottles and jugs.
