    The Right Man for the Job | Doug Peltzman | ep. #73

    Doug Peltzman is a studio potter in Shokan, NY, part of New York's Hudson Valley. His attention to detail and ambitious take on the ceramic process has led him to the forefront of the field. We spoke in October 2016, and talked about family, boredom, pushing limits, and influences.

    Taking on the Work | Peter Christian Johnson | ep.#72

    Peter Christian Johnson and I talked way back in April of 2015 as I was taking a hiatus from podcasting, but wanting to get him on the mic. We talk about the nature of learning and teaching in a sometimes social media and technology driven world, fatherhood, and managing time and life. Peter teaches ceramics at Kent State University in Ohio.

    Hot Potato! | 14 guests of August | ep. #71

    Western Massachusetts is a beautiful, quiet place steeped in history and practical creativity. I spent the weekend on July 28 - 30 at Project Art in Cummington, MA and made my way around the studios of potters in the Hilltown 6 summer tour.

    Wisdom is Earned | Mary Barringer, Silvie Granatelli, Gail Kendall | ep.#70

    Wisdom is Earned | Mary Barringer, Silvie Granatelli, Gail Kendall | ep.#70

    This episode was recorded live at NCECA 2017 in Portland, OR. My guests, Mary Barringer, Silvie Granatelli, Gail Kendall are some of my favorite people and I have worked with them in some capacity over the years. Prior to our live podcast recording I sent them three questions that this episode revolves around.
    You’ve all been making work for several decades. Do you aim to make work that fits an “ideal” or are you evolving over time? In other words, how close do you feel you are to making pots that are truly yours? How are you exploiting your studio time now as a creative outlet, and does that reach outside of ceramics? All three of you have made changes to your career (retirement, cutting down on shows) that were a big part of life for many years, what has the transition to your latest chapter of life been like?

    From the Treehouse to the Penthouse | Jennifer Brook | ep.#69

    From the Treehouse to the Penthouse | Jennifer Brook | ep.#69

    Jennifer Brook is an artist and strategic designer with an eclectic, inquiry-led practice. She currently is the lead design researcher at Dropbox in San Francisco, CA. I met Jennifer back in 2006 at the Penland School of Crafts while were were both working as studio assistants. Her confidence and ability to take what she's learned from making books and art has led her down a very interesting and socially engaging path. From her website: 
    A brief working manifesto:
    Questions are magic Listen with guts Kindness connects Adventure is essential

    The Pivot (pt.1): A Human Centered Approach | Alex Matisse | ep. #68

    The Pivot (pt.1): A Human Centered Approach | Alex Matisse | ep. #68

    Alex Matisse is a potter in Western North Carolina. In this first of two episodes about the idea of pivoting, he talks about moving from a traditional North Carolina pottery workshop to a market driven, sometimes mechanized form of production. This conversation was recorded in June of 2016, and we also recorded a follow-up in June of 2017 to help give listeners an idea of what challenges Alex and his team at Eastfork Pottery have had to endure. 
    From their website: East Fork Pottery is nestled at the end of a valley on an old tobacco field, between steep green mountains, thirty minutes northwest of Asheville, North Carolina.  Founded in 2010 by Alexander Matisse & Connie Coady, the workshop is now home to potter John Vigeland and a growing team of apprentices and staff. 
    The Jonescast would also like to remember Paulus Berensohn, who passed on June 15. He was a guest of the show, and you can listen to him on episode #61. Rest in Peace.
