Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler Podcast I have an interview with Heidi Fahrenbacher. She runs Bella Joy Pottery in Plainwell, MI making multiple lines of functional pottery. In our interview we talk about her circuitous path to being a maker and how working the show circuit influenced her formula for pricing. To see examples of her work visit (Content note: Grief due to homicide/suicide are discussed in the interview.)
