Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Giselle Hicks. Her minimalist vessels combine simple glazes with refined forms to highlight the process marks of her coil-building technique. After reading Elaine Scarry’s On Beauty and Being Just, Hicks has embraced the decorative function of her work, focusing on a quest for personal beauty. In our interview we talk about her experience selling through interior designers and how her transition between sculptural and functional bodies of work helped her cultivate a new audience.
