The Studio Potter: Mary Barringer & Elenor Wilson on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast


Covers from early issues of the Studio Potter


Volume 42 Number 2 cover with drawings by Richard Nickel


Elenor Wilson and Mary Barringer

This week on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Mary Barringer and Elenor Wilson. Although both are accomplished ceramic artists our interview is focused on their tenures as editor for the The Studio Potter journal. Established in 1972 The Studio Potter has had an active role in documenting and shaping the American pottery scene. 

In the interview we talk about the history of the journal, balancing editorial duties with an artistic life, and the impact digital media has had on The Studio Potter.

"The next issue, themed "Community: kinfolk, lineage, legacy" will publish in January 2015. Submissions for the Summer 2015 issue on "Surface" are due February 15, 2015. We recently established the Gerry Williams Commemorative Digital Archive Fund in honor of our late founder, which will help continue to digitize our back issues. 1972-82 is available at http://studiopotter.org/archive/ but there are 32 more years - 64 more issues - to go. Donations can be made for that or for general support of SP at http://studiopotter.org/donate/."
