Ken Druse REAL DIRT Podcast: Stoneware Vessels Ease Into the Garden – with Stephen Procter

I met Ken at the Connecticut Horticultural Society’s Biennial Symposium in early February, 2016, where he was a featured speaker. The podcast was recorded on February 12. Ken described my work as “an exclamation point in the garden”. He was an easy and skillful interviewer, and for 25 minutes we talked about wabi sabi, burned pots, stoneware versus terra cotta, Guy Wolff Pottery, coolie hats for pots, how I make big pots, shrinkage, placing pots in gardens, destinations and sanctuaries, the color of vessels, and seasons of the garden.

From Ken’s website: Ken has been called a “gardening superstar.” With sixteen books to his credit, frequent television appearances, regular articles for leading national newspapers and magazines, and now with his Podcast, he is one of the nation’s leading voices of natural gardening. His groundbreaking book, “The Natural Garden,” initiated a design movement that continues to grow in popularity today.

My friend Bill Forchion made this 5-minute film in 2013. Bill is a circus performer, actor, filmmaker, and lives here in Brattleboro.

I don’t “tweet” or do any other kind of social media, but I’m on Facebook. A variety of casual photos from around the studio get posted there, including the newest vessels, hot out of the kiln. “Like” my page to stay in touch.

Incidentally, my wife is also a potter. She likes to say she makes “normal” sized things. Find her website at Teta Hilsdon. She’s also on Facebook at Teta Hilsdon Stoneware Pottery.
