Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Jacques Kauffman. He uses ceramic bricks to build large-scale installation and sculpture. In the interview we talk about his philosophy of making, the influence of his time working in Rwanda, and his role in developing bioactive architecture that reduces green house gases in urban environments. Jacques recently retired from being the head of ceramics at the Ecole d‘arts appliqués in Vevey and is the president of the International Academy of Ceramics.
