Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a panel discussion about green energy and sustainable studio practices with Gabriel Kline, Kent Mclaughlin, and Erica Schneider. In our wide-ranging conversation we talk about balancing financial investment with long-term environmental safety, utilizing free recycled fuel sources to fire kilns, and best practices for establishing a waste free studio.  This episode was taped in front of a live studio audience at the Odyssey Center for Ceramic Art in Asheville, NC.
