This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist and educator Joe Bova. Using biomorphic and zoomorphic subject matter, Joe creates hollow formed ceramic sculpture that serves as a vehicle for political, social and mythical narratives. His work has been widely exhibited in hundreds of group shows and more than a fifteen major solo exhibitions spanning his decades-long ceramic career. In addition to his studio work Joe was active in the classroom from 1969-2007, when he was an integral part of building the ceramic programs at Nichols State University, Louisiana State University and Ohio University.

In the interview we talk about building a ceramic program in higher education, developing a deft touch in clay, and the erotic nature of creativity. For more information on his work please visit
