Robbie Lobell and I took some time out of our busy NCECA week to get to know one another a bit better. Our broad reaching conversation covers her background as a student protester in Berkeley during the 60's, her late arrival to functional ceramics, and the necessity of choosing flameware as a way to make a living. She's inherited her flameware directly from Karen Karnes and has built a niche market by connecting the function of her work, localvore cutlure, and the internet. I really had a good time talking with Robbie and I admire her tenacity and openess to taking on risk.
