Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Jack Troy, Carolanne Currier and Amy Burk. We came together at the home studio of Jack and Carolanne to talk about their careers in ceramics. We had a wide-ranging discussion on wood kiln technology, the founding of the ceramic program at Juniata College, Jack’s passion for writing and the ceramic history of the region. We end our conversation talking about the Strictly Functional Pottery National, which Amy is a co-organizer, and Jack has been the juror three times. More information on Jack can be found at www.jacktroy.net. More information on Amy can be found at www.amyburkpottery.com. More information on Carolanne can be found on her Face Book pages.
