Folded Pigs Dinnerware by Meredith Host
Dot Dot Dash by Meredith Host
This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a panel discussion featuring Cary Esser, Meredith Host and Tommy Frank. Each panelist is a ceramic artist that balances their art career with a business oriented profession. Our discussion centers around how creativity is an asset in the business world. We discuss the creative overlap between art making and teaching, running a small business or managing an art center.
Cary Esser is a professor and chair of the ceramics department at the Kansas City Art Institute. You can find our more about her architectural tile and sculpture at www.caryesser.com. Meredith Host is a full time studio artist and entrepreneur who has developed the Dot Dot Dash and Folded Pigs lines of dinnerware. You can find out more about her work at www.meredithhost.com.
