There is a type of pottery that just seems to have a magic to it. One of these potters was Abe Broulard and he lived during the late 1800's in Santa Rosa, California. Every day, he would come out of his workshop and make his pottery right there on the sidewalk. A lot of people really appreciated what he was doing, so he sold his wares for 15 cents each.
