Courtney Martin is a Spruce Pine, NC-based studio potter specializing in wood fired goods. She talks about her influences of geometry and the pottery of Mata Ortiz, which based a pottery style on the archeology of Casas Grandes in Chihuahua, Mexico. She also touches on pirates and parenting while working as a full-time craftsperson. With Courtney, we get a glimpse of the sea change in wood fired ceramics being pioneered by women.
