This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler podcast I have an interview with ceramic artist Shannon Sullivan. Her sculptural and installation works are inspired by mineralogy, microbiology and other scientific interpretations of the natural world. In the interview we talk about utilizing an art consultant, working in Jingdezhen, and Peter Pearce's research into maximum design diversity. In addition to her studio work Shannon is a Professor of Art at the College of the Redwoods in Eureka, CA. For more information please visit
