Plate Fragment by Christoph Weber

In this episode we meet with historical archaeologist Mike Strezewski and talk about his excavation of the Harmonist kiln site in New Harmony, Indiana. We will also meet with Tom Wintczak, a redware potter who made  plates, strainers and pitchers, inspired from the broken shards and pieces from the excavation site. We also will learn about Alf Lookabill, a Civil War veteran and gourd artist who gained quite a reputation for his work.
