Inspiration credit goes to Laura Brandenburg of www.facebook.com/stonewares . She is a wife, mommy (soon to be a mommy again) and talented potter. Laura and I both sell our wares at a local farmer's market, www.facebook.com/barrstreetmarket on saturday mornings. I noticed this lovely vase of hers while I was selling two booths down. She normally throws on the wheel as well, so it caught my eye. I went down and complimented her and got a closer look. It was lovely. It inspired me. So, here's to Laura Brandenburg! Thanks for the inspiration. She has a blog, too: www.stonewares.blogspot.com .
