Not many businesses can say they date back to 1912. Sandkuhl Clayworks, out of Ohio, is a family business that has adapted over the decades and thankfully hasn’t had to use the word pivot in any way to describe their last year during these trying times. On this episode I had the opportunity to speak to Ann Engh who brings decades of experience and knowledge to her craft as a custom clay maker, extruder and kiln technician. Ann is seen as a leader in her field and is the go-to person for clay block projects that involve custom molds or extrusion on a large scale. Ann and I joined forces along with Partisans Architects to bring together a clay block job in Toronto that is out of this world. Ann also lets us in on the big award that was just announced where this project took first place in the International Masonry Institute for its innovative design. So congrats Ann for all your hard work as we need to celebrate more people like you who are normally provide the means to achieve such high praise.
With that Art of Craft listeners, I give you my conversation with Ann from Sandkuhl Clayworks.
