New Blog by a New Friend

(This is my new teaball...a genius idea and totally unconnected to the following post...)

I want to introduce you to Brenda Hornsby Heindl and her exciting new blog. libertystoneware.blogspot.com 
I met Brenda last March at the Colonial Williamsburg conference on 18th c. salt glazed stoneware. She attended Berea College in the Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky where she got a good foundation in making useful pots. She is also a graduate of  the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture. Her academic interest in historic pottery is a big influence on her own work. Brenda recently moved to North Carolina with her husband to set up their own businesses. I hope that our North Carolina bretheren will give her a particularly warm welcome!

I'm looking forward to looking at the new blog, but first -- do you mind explaining how the tea ball works?

Dan, you're a doll for sharing my blog! Thanks so much! Set that date for a kiln firing, I'll see if I can make it up and I'll write a blog about YOU! I hope we can rally our way to Milwaukee in November for more ceramic nerdiness!
