RedDot Podcast | Episode 021 | An Interview with Sculptor Paige Bradley

Sculptor Paige Bradley draws inspiration from relationships and an inner dialog about the human form. Bradley now works out of a studio in Stamford, Connecticut, but in the past she’s maintained studios in New York City, and in her hometown of Carmel, California.

Bradley’s work has been featured in galleries across the United States, and her sculpture is in collections around the world.

In my interview with Bradley, she shares insights about her life-long journey to express her vision and overcome the challenges that face artists as they strive to build a career.

When I asked Paige if there was ever any question about whether or not she would pursue her art as her profession, she says there never was.

“I didn’t allow the question to even come in.” she says. “There were days where it was dark, and I didn’t know how I would pay bills, and it seemed hopeless and scary, and I was sleepless . . . but within 48 hours, usually, an angel would walk in to my studio and buy a sculpture from me. It just felt like the universe always sent me a signal that I was on the right track.”

  1. Any way I could convince you to give up on the podcasts and do this in print? I find it fascinating, as I have also done entry level sculpture, bit I’m deaf as a stone, and the ‘pod’ cast’s its message to the wind.

    1. Hi Barbara – we present our content in a variety of formats and I’ve done printed interviews in the past, but I do love the podcast format which allows for a conversation and for listeners to hear the artists in their own voices.

      These podcasts are rebroadcast on my YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLUa76jegT6cUkv6sEdcS1QsM5WuIIqK86 and after about a week, closed captioning is auto-added by Google. It’s not perfect transcription, but they do a pretty good job most of the time.

  2. Great podcast. Great interview. I really appreciated Paige describing how art making needs to be more than just creating a work or body of work. It needs to say something from deep inside.

  3. Hi,

    The post was uncommonly profitable for me. Extraordinary digital broadcast. Extraordinary meeting. I extremely refreshing Paige depicting how workmanship making should be something other than making a work or collection of work. It needs to state something from somewhere inside.I enjoyed the experience of investigating the post of yours.I will in fact share this post. incredible prosperity!!

  4. Hi Jason,
    Thank you and Paige for this inspiring interview. I really enjoyed hearing Paige’s story and her insights about art. That it has to be authentic and come from inside you so that others, not only those trained in art, can hear your voice.
    Sincerely,
    Santana
