Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Daniel Johnston. Based in Seagrove, NC, Daniel is an compelling mix between a traditionally trained potter and a contemporary artist who makes ceramic vessels to utilize their conceptual potential. He studied under NC pottery luminaries J.B. Cole and Mark Hewitt before traveling to Thailand to learn large vessel making. His recent work is installation-based and features numerous jars that are arranged within gallery spaces to modify the viewers perception of light and scale. In the interview we talk about learning to communicate verbally to combat dyslexia, studying big pot making in Thailand, and his One Hundred Pot project. To find more information on Daniel visit
