Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Linda Christianson. Working in rural Minnesota, Christianson makes wood fired pottery that is simple and direct. Embracing process marks she often utilizes graceful throwing lines and meandering trimmed edges as a core part of her aesthetic. Christianson’s soft touch remains visually intact even after the pots enter the harsh environment of a wood fired kiln. In the interview we talk about working through self-doubt, digging into the unknown for new ideas, and living in a rebuilt 19th century log cabin. For more information on her work please visit
