Dr. Matthew Welch is the curator of Stoked: Five Artists of Fire and Clay which opened on January 19 at the KIA. Welch, Deputy Director for Cultural Affairs at The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, says that he became aware of the Saint John's Pottery shortly after arriving in Minnesota in 1990. Eventually he wrote a history of the pottery, Body of Clay, Soul of Fire: Richard Bresnahan and the Saint John's Pottery, published through Afton Historical Press. More recently he wrote STOKED: Five Artists of Fire and Clay, the catalog that accompanies the KIA exhibition. Join Dr. Welch as he discusses the works featured in the Stoked exhibition, and his relationship with the artists.
