169: Laurie and Peter Pincus on developing complex mold systems
Tales of a Red Clay Rambler: A pottery and ceramic art podcast
Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Peter and Laurie Pincus. The couple live in Rochester, NY where they maintain a studio and Peter teaches at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Peter designs vessels that have up to 170 mold parts, which allow him to visually break the pieces into hundreds of small blocks of color. Beyond being a technical tour-de-force, the pieces often defy visual logic making the viewer question the three-dimensional nature of the pieces. In our interview we talk about developing his mold system, the working relationship that Peter and Laurie share, and how focusing on a complex process can help decrease stress and anxiety. To see examples of his work please visit www.peterpincus.com. This episode of the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler is sponsored by the 2017 Canadian Clay Symposium. Happening March 18th 2017 at the Shadbolt Center for the Arts in Vancouver, Canada, this one day symposium invites participants to explore our changing relationships with emerging technologies. Through interactive demonstrations, panel discussions and exhibits, a diverse group of ten international presenters will address the relevance of traditional and contemporary technologies.
