Being founded on the belief, everyone needs a bowl to eat from, here at Squeaky Wheel Pottery our work is of a practical and affordable nature although Krispy would admit that a limited amount of his work would classify as art for the elite. Potter's belong to a class of very simple beings, and due to this, their philosophy is often sought out for guidance. Pieces have even been given away free at times.
Krispy's son "Mud Man" was in residence here at Squeaky Wheel until his untimely demise five years ago; he also subscribed to this philosophy. A permanent memorial erected, to honor him, on the front lawn of the Headwaters School for Music and Arts in his hometown of Bemidji, MN. The monument is a tribute to his community involvement and artistic contributions to the community. Potters being a humble lot.
This memorial is a rare honor. Also being, one of two people, the other being Chief Bemidji in his hometown of Bemidji, MN to have a permanent memorial monument says a lot about his passion for people, ceramics and life.
