Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a discussion with Garth Clark & Justin Crowe. The two are core staff members of CFile, an online ceramic journal covering “a global community of cutting-edge educators, ceramics creatives, critics, curators, collectors, dealers, and brilliant young techies.” Along with their role of championing avante-garde ceramics they are one of the few journalistic organizations that investigates ceramics from a global multidisciplinary perspective. In the interview we talk about the trends sweeping through the field including fractal fascination, extreme glazing, and the rise of 3D printing. Pictured above: Trend setting artists Takuro Kuwata, Del Harrow and Brian Rochefort. For more information please visit
