Material Matters Podcast
I am a huge fan of this excellent podcast by Grant Gibson. In each episode Grant interviews makers, artists and designers about their practice and their relationship with the materials and techniques they use. Into its second season Grant interviews ceramicists Kate Malone and Edmund de Waal, writer and Craft champion Glen Adamson, Eleanor Lakelin, Peter Layton, Celia Pym, Bill Amberg, James Shaw, Simone ten Hopel and Laura Ellen Bacon with more episodes added each week.
In a society that is losing contact with the material world this series is a timely reminder to students and practitioners alike that developing an acute understanding of materials and techniques is fundamental not just to the design process but to the preservation of knowledge, skills and cultural heritage.
