288: Nick Danielson on using CAD to design templates for hand-built pots
Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Nick Danielson. After an early interest in conceptual sculpture, Nick has been solely focused on making functional pottery for the last eight years. His work is an aesthetic blend of Korean Buncheong ware, color from contemporary graphic design, and the angular nature of computer aided drafting (CAD), which he uses to design the work. In our interview we talk about studying in Korea, balancing historical and contemporary influences, and using the CAD to get creative with his forms and surfaces.
