This episode is an absolute treat - Steven interviews ceramic artist Nan Deardorff-McClain, maker of the beautiful ceramic map of Delft. This is a delightful project turning a graffiti-covered wall into a physical representation of a visually extraordinary ceramic representation of a 15th century map. Nan shares the details of the project and how the local community came together to make it a reality. Do yourself a favor and check out the fantastic pictures in the links below. This project shows the incredible power of physical cartographic art. Hopefully we can get Nan to a Geomob event in the future to share more about this map.
