The Potters:
Andrew Balmer
Patricia Burns

After learning to make pottery at Berea College’s Apprenticeship Program in Berea, Kentucky, we moved to Oregon in 1976. We set up our first pottery studio and named it Fern Hill after a favorite Dylan Thomas poem.

We had twin sons, Noah and Tim, in 1984 and we’ve been making pots together in Oregon for over 25 years.
