Brian Harper is a leader within the quickly arriving younger generation of American ceramic artists. In 2006 he started artaxis, a database of ceramic artists, which since become an important piece of ceramic education and networking. Along with his digital foundation within the field Brian also teaches full time at Indiana University Southeast and he maintains a studio practice. Brian is also the founder of The Open Crowd Project a collaborative 3D printing project that uses 3D scanning and printing technology to print groups of people spread out by large distances. We talk about the importance of being connected, taking cues from mentors, and how miniscule events can be the catalyst for larger changes.
