Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Jane Sawyer. Trained as an art educator before completing two traditional apprenticeships, Jane has developed a body of work that utilizes finger swipes and brushwork to decorate the surfaces of her slipware pots. In addition to her studio practice she is the director of the Slow Clay Center, which offers classes and workshops in Melbourne, Australia. In the interview we talk about her training in Australia and Japan, pottery as a catalyst for corporeal awareness, and the history of the Slow Clay Center.
