This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have a panel discussion with Kristen Kieffer, Julia Galloway, and Michael Kline on current trends in ceramic design. Our wide-ranging conversation looks at the effect of the internet on the way we see design, the pressures on young artists to succeed, and dealing with the restless personality of the artist.

  1. Listened to this today and it's my favorite podcast yet. Nothing like hearing the right thing at the right time. No answers to these things really but so nice to hear the concerns are universal. In relation to the discussion about dealing with anxiety, my way of dealing with it is to stop doing everything else and just make. :) Thanks to the four of you.

    1. Hello Sophie, Sorry it took a while for me to see your comment. Thanks for listening to the episode. It was one of my favorites also.

      I love your anxiety solution! Getting in the studio is the best way to relax my brain.

      Hope you are doing well,
