In our latest podcast episode, ceramicist Carol McNicoll talks about her early beginnings making textiles for repertory theatre, how she was able to subvert the traditional idea of ceramics while at the Royal Academy of Art, how decoration, functionality and playfulness are essential features of her work, and how the 2003 Iraq War led to a more political and satirical aspect to her oeuvre.
