I can't remember when I first ran across Two Potters shop. I don't know them personally but when you read about them on their website you immediately (or at least I did) want to have a life like them or at least be their friends. They hike and kayak and live on an old dairy farm in Vermont. They spent three years collecting bricks and building their own wood-fired kiln for their pottery. They have chickens and a yellow Labrador. Fun! Their website is full of of gorgeous photos of their breathtaking surroundings and their wonderful pottery.
