Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a panel on nonacademic paths for learning wood firing featuring Robin Dupont, Jody Johnstone, Scott Parady, Martin Tagseth, and Tara Wilson. The panelists discuss a wide range of personal experience from Johnstone’s time in a traditional Japanese apprenticeship to Parady establishing his Cobb Mountain Art & Ecology Project to teach wood firing and ecology. To see examples of the panelists work and find out more about each artist visit www.culturalconfluencewoodfiresymposium.com/artists. The presentation was given at the Cultural Confluence Wood Fire Symposium, held in Helena, MT in October 2018. (Pictured - Above: Dupont, Johnstone, Parady. Below: Wilson, Tagseth)
Hey Red Clay Rambler fans, I want to take a minute to talk to you about our sustaining membership program. As we head into 2019, I want to appeal to you directly to help us meet our new goal of having 120 patrons by April 1st. I’m asking you to make a $5 pledge today at patreon.com/redclayrambler. That’s only $1.25 per episode to help me document the field of ceramics. This new goal will help me record interviews with Canadian artists on my upcoming trip in April. If you prefer you can make a one-time donation through the Pay Pal portal at www.talesofaredclayrambler.com. If you have been thinking about getting involved don’t wait any longer. Every dollar helps, and no donation is too small. Thanks again for supporting the podcast!
