Courtney Murphy on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with potter Courtney Murphy. Her functional earthenware draws from a variety of influences including "simplified abstractions of nature, children's artwork, folk art, mid-century modern forms and shapes, as well as textiles, patterns and historical pots." She maintains a studio in Missoula, MT were she is an artist-in-residence at the Clay Studio of Missoula.

In the interview we discuss our mutual love for Western North Carolina, her approach to pattern and form, and her experience making the rounds of the ceramic residency circuit.

    1. Hello Judi,
      Your message made my day. I would love to up it to two a week. Now if I can only squeeze in the 25th and 26th hour of each day so I can make that happen.
