Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Josh Deweese. His undulating functional forms are embellished with curvilineal handles and decorated with fluid high-fire glazes. In our interview we talk about the influence of his artistic family, developing a leadership style as an administrator and teacher, and using local materials to enhance his glazes. Josh was the Resident Director of the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts from 1992-2006 and is now an Associate Professor of Art at Montana State University.
