This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with American ceramic artist Amanda Small. Her mixed media installations draw parallels between macro/microbiological systems and cultural/interpersonal connection. In the interview we talk about the value of a multidisciplinary education, traveling as a knowledge base for creativity, and her use of systems as a catalyst for sculpture.

She recently stepped down as the project coordinator at the Guldagergaard international ceramic research center in Skaelskor, Denmark to focus full time on her studio work. As a recent recipient of a North Carolina Arts Commission grant she received funding to establish a studio in Chapel Hill, NC. For more information on her work please visit
