Spirit Lake's ceramic songster

                                                      Spirit Lake potter, Brad Sondahl, in his studio/Ralph Bartholdt

 Venture far enough down Spirit Lake, Idaho's Maine Avenue in the direction of the lake, you'll see one of the town's many gems.
Brad Sondahl opened his pottery shop on the corner in the town's oldest building - a former railroad house -a couple decades ago after earning an art degree from a Midwestern college.

In addition to his homemade ceramics, Sondahl, a banjo and guitar picker, creates music in the shop.
Here's an example:
