372: Adrienne Eliades on using a die cutter for pattern making
Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Adrienne Eliades. From her Vancouver, Washington studio she makes highly decorated functional pots that draw from mid-century modern patterns and aesthetics. In our interview we talk about developing confidence as a teacher, using die-cut stencils, and her role as program coordinator for Idyllwild’s Hot Clay summer program. For more information visit www.adrienneeliades.com. Hey Red Clay Rambler fans, it’s May, which means we are celebrating the 9th birthday of the podcast.
