    Some Things You DON'T Need to Sell Art | Dwayne Nii-Teiko Sackey | Episode 709

    Some Things You DON'T Need to Sell Art | Dwayne Nii-Teiko Sackey | Episode 709

    Dwayne Nii-Teiko Sackey's work leaves a trace of a fluid, organic process and a human set of hands. Windswept trees, cold blue bodies of water, and lichen covered granite boulders intrigue and informs Dwayne's artistic palette.  Gentle curves, textured surfaces, and meandering lines speak through Dwayne's art. Atmosphere, expressive brush strokes, and simple glazes mimic the timelessness of nature.

A great listen, for great creatives

I think it is extraordinary the spaces that creatives build. This is a space that reaches exactly that amazement. I never would expect to sit and listen to a podcast about art, process, healing, and more FROM other clay creatives... by creatives.

WOW! It Worked!

Episode 703 ROCKED my world! I have been listening to the Potter’s Cast for years! I started back when you did live meetings with just 10-20 folks and discussed your pottery business. Then it moved to PodCasts. I just finished episode 703 earlier this week where Erin Killian suggested ways to build your Instagram following. I decided to try her suggestions! It works! I grew my following by 100 follows over night, had several messages and inquiries and several sales! Who knew?? I was selective in how I followed her instructions, but it truly worked! Thank you so much for the PodCast. It keeps me company in my studio with tons of good tips and tricks and I love hearing about all the other potters and their journeys!

Fantastic! Every Potter needs to listen!

I’ve just taken the step to be a full time potter (from art teacher) and this podcast has provided so much fantastic information on the business side of pottery! I’ve grown by leaps and bounds by listening to the Potters Cast! Thank you Paul for leading great interviews and to all the potters who have shared their stories, struggles, and tips on pottery & the pottery business!
