This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Joel Magen. His recent passing was a huge shock to the clay community in Northern California. One of the few potters in the area to offer an apprenticeship, Joel helped educate dozens of potters at his Dark Horse Pottery in Davenport, CA. In our 2014 interview we talked about Marguerite Wildenhain's influence on California studio pottery, how ceramics fit into the back-to-the-land movement of the 1960's, and the evolution of Dark Horse Pottery.
