    Gaya Ceramic Arts Center | Hillary Kane | Episode 601

    I see my artwork as a journey in which the process - the very visceral act of creating is as significant as the final outcome. It is labyrinthine in its development and I am often surprised by the intuitive level of its revelation. I am entranced by the visual traces of this journey and the slow development of a patina of color and texture, the subtle variation of simple forms, and the impact of timing, and of time.

    An Icelandic Potter | Embla Sigurgeirsdottir | Episode 597

    An Icelandic Potter | Embla Sigurgeirsdottir | Episode 597

    Ceramics found Embla Sigurgeirsdottir in 2011, an adventure had begun and a new passion for life. Embla works mainly with surface texture by carving into and through her porcelain designs, creating strong patterns and dramatic effects of light and shadows. Embla's designs often come from the ability of the material itself.  Working with porcelain and drawn to its white and translucent nature, Embla plays with the boundaries it gives her, always trying to push it a little further each time.

The Mr. Rogers of Pottery

Thanks for the podcast. Recently moving to a rural community it is nice to stay connected to the larger pottery world and I really like the diversity of your guests. Your kindness and genuine curiousity/interest for your interviewees comes through in every episode. Also, the tagline at the end always puts the cheesiest grin on my face as I try to say it alongside you. Thanks Paul!
