Show Notes

Fire and Clay with Alan Potter
Join Alan and me as we discuss his amazing animal sculptures that are created using RAKU, an ancient Japanese ceramic firing technique. We talk about his technique, a special teacher, and how pressure helps him get into the creative flow. He shares what to do when a sculpture doesn't work out as planned, and what his working studio is like.  We also get to hear about Wade the Raven, a special ceramic bird that has his own children's book.
