Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Scott Barnim. Based in Dundas, Ontario, Barnim has been a potter for over 40 years. In his early career he made traditional salt ware pottery, but later became interested in surface decoration after doing a master’s degree at the University of Wales. His studio production now includes highly decorated stoneware, low fire reduced luster ceramics and cobalt transfer ware. In our interview we talk about the nuts and bolts of running a successful studio pottery, understanding reduced luster ceramics, and learning from British studio potters Alan Caiger-Smith and Mick Casson.
