Hi hi!!!! My friend @brianrjones did a great interview about what's happening @eastforkpottery . The main interview is from a year ago but we did a follow up just a few weeks ago. Thanks Brian for letting me yammer on for so long!
The latest episode of the #jonescast is up with @alexmatisse! Alex Matisse is a potter in Western North Carolina. In this first of two episodes about the idea of pivoting, he talks about moving from a traditional North Carolina pottery workshop to a market driven, sometimes mechanized form of production. This conversation was recorded in June of 2016, and we also recorded a follow-up in June of 2017 to help give listeners an idea of what challenges Alex and his team at @eastforkpottery have had to endure.
From their website: East Fork Pottery is nestled at the end of a valley on an old tobacco field, between steep green mountains, thirty minutes northwest of Asheville, North Carolina. Founded in 2010 by Alexander Matisse & Connie Coady, the workshop is now home to potter John Vigeland and a growing team of apprentices and staff. Link to the show in profile.
