2 Guys Named Ben: Pat Shields

The exclusive series continues as the bicycling Bens meet a local potter.

The Bens ride into Danielsville, Georgia, to spend time with traditional potter Pat Shields. We also run into Flora Knight (from New Zealand), who is staying with Pat for a while. We learn about native Alabama clay, and the good life: a little farming, a little tractor work, and a little pottery.
