This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast, I have an interview with Whitney Smith. Inspired by the natural world and the floral patterns of Art Nouveau, Whitney produces a variety of functional pottery in her Oakland, CA studio. In addition to being a full-time potter Whitney has been a devoted blogger since 2006. Her direct and humorous writing style has drawn a world-wide following to her blog, This Artist's Life: Life in and Out of the Ceramic Studio.
In the interview we talk about crafting your story through social media, selling online through Etsy, and dealing with burnout. You can find out more about Whitney's work at www.whitneysmithpottery.com. The interview was taped in front of a live audience at the 4th and Clay Studio in Berkeley, CA.
