His name is Ben Behunin and we really want you to meet him. We first met Ben in our search for unique gifts to offer at our Quilter's Mercantile. Shannon White spotted his pottery pin bowls and knew they were a quilter's must-have! She scheduled an appointment to visit his pottery studio where we found ourselves surrounded by clever creations. Ben has creative spirit coming out of his ears, filling his studio, and rolling it's tendrils out into the yard reaching passers by, friends and strangers alike, welcoming them into his world of inventive expression. Ben could write the book on The Secrets of Creating an Artful Life. Oh, wait! He has! Well-known for his original pottery designs, Ben is also the author of several books including Remembering Isaac and Authentically Ruby but his talent doesn't stop there. He dabbles in artisan bread-making and more recently, porridge... You heard me right. He packages the best dang porridge you've ever tasted and it's appropriately labeled, Potter's Porridge. Come give it a try! Meet Ben Friday, March 13 at the Merc where he will be happy to do a reading, perhaps talk about balancing pottery and writing and spend some time signing books (in exchange for advice on raising teenagers). Did I mention his wit is as quick and clever as his creativity?
