Richard Notkin on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a double episode with ceramic artist Richard Notkin. Known for his protest art Notkin has approached a variety of subject matter during his career including the folly of war, the nuclear age, and global warming. His teapots and tile work can be found in numerous museums around the United States including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum and the Mint Museum of Craft and Design.

In the interview we talk about establishing a visual language, the influence of the Vietnam War and developing a collector base. For more information on his work you can visit Richard's Art Axis page or click here to see the PBS Craft in America segment that featured Richard's work.
