358. Larissa Warren on the Wild Women and Wild Clay of Tamborine Mountain
Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Larissa Warren. She is based in Tamborine Mountain in southeast Queensland, Australia where she uses the Nerikomi process to make ceramic vessels that reference geological strata. In addition to her ceramic practice, she has been researching the raw clays that are native to her surrounding area and the potters that have used them dating back to the 1940’s including the Morris sisters, Doris Aagaard, and Frances Carnegie. In our interview we talk about searching for raw clays, the history of past generations of Queensland potters, and the impact these women had on their rural mountain community.

On today’s Amaco Community Corkboard we have Savannah Clay Community’s SIP cup show. Artists are invited to submit up to three drinking vessels to be juried by Renee Lopresti for their annual cup show. This year’s exhibition is taking place all-online and the deadline for submissions is midnight EST on March 31st, 2021. For more information visit www.savannahclaycommunity.com.
