Potter, Tammy Beane (right), explains her technique to a visitor at Dillard Mill's, Dillard Day, 2006. The mill is in Crawford Co. Mo.
Tammy is an excellent replicator. She can use both primitive and modern techniques to achieve stunning results. Some of her work is shown here and below. This page shows just a few examples of her work but she's done hundreds and hundreds more.
Last year, Tammy demonstrated her craft at the Southeastern Archaeological Conference, in Little Rock, Ar. Nov. 9th, 10th, and 11th.
She also demonstrated her craft at the 2007 Southeastern Archaeological Conference. November 1st thru the 3rd, in Knoxville Tn.
