     I "discovered" Prairie Fire a number of years ago on my annual trip to Montana and got our first piece, a very large serving bowl. Since then I've stopped many times and luckily, my wife has been able to accompany me on the last two trips. We love the pieces we've gotten and everyone asks about them. I've met Jerry a few times but missed Tama on every trip - guess I'll just have to keep making the pilgrimage until our schedules match. And you really need to stop at the shop if you can. It is charming and there are always some amazing creations.
Emily M Williams, Memphis, TN
     Came to this shop while visiting family, the people were so nice, and I loved the beautiful pieces. Now I buy them as gifts for my friends!

     There isn't a day that goes by that my hands or eyes do not touch your creation ! Unless I'm away from home! Jerry & Tama have a great spring & great YEAR !
juneve givers, moorhead MN
     I have had two vases made by you. One survives, the other made a lovely mosaic after being dropped on the sidewalk by the flower garden. Oops! I especially like it when you include a flower or two in your vases so as to get perspective on size.
     Just put our new piece of pottery to use. Simmered an Irish Style Stew, while appetizing with a sharp cheddar and Port wine. Oh, what a night!!! Wouldn't have been the same without the ambiance of Prairie Fire Pottery. Thank you Jerry & Tama.
     Just bought my wife's annual Christmas gift. As always, she will say I made an excellent selection again. Don't tell her though (shhhh) I really buy it for myself. I love Prairie Fire Pottery ever bit as much as she does.

     Since your beautiful lidded bakeware arrived, I have baked wonderful soups in it.myhusband thought it was too beautiful to use, but it washed up easily. In between uses, it graces my counter.
Bonnie Prigge, Vichy, MO
     After six years of coming to Regent pheasant hunting, we FINALLYmade to your studio in Beach a couple of weeks ago. Amazing! I love the intensity of the colors. And I got to sign the wall in person!
Kathy , Minnesota
     I bought three egg separators from you back in early September, two as gifts and of course one for myself. I just need to tell you the ladies I got them for LOVED them. One went to Idaho and one to Oregon. I don't know if they will ever get used to separate eggs, but they are reminders of a wonderful time the three of us spent together. We always try to stop and shop on our trips west.....your shop is right on our way from Minnesota to Idaho. And I just finished an online order for one of my daughters. Thank you for having such amazing pottery!
Howard & Margaret Hall, Winchester, TN
     We were on the last few days of a 2-week road trip to Mt. Rushmore, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, etc. when we entered ND on our way home in TN. We saw the billboard advertising Prairie Fire Pottery and decided to stop in Beach and check it out as local made pottery is the one thing I like to purchase when I am traveling. I purchased some items and would have loved to have gotten more because I liked Tama's work so much. The items I purchased look so nice in my home and I will always have memories of ND when I use them. I have just placed an order for some Christmas gifts. I only wish I had taken Tama and Jerry's picture for my photo album that I will be putting together regarding our trip. Prairie Fire Pottery was one of the highlights of our trip. I am so thankful I can order online.
peggy sue, quincy, il
     I just had to tell how pleased we are with our plates, bowl, & mugs we purchased from you in july. When my husband seen them for the first time he counldn't believe how beautiful they were. He sets our table with them every night! Love, love, love them. Thanks!
Glenda Jo Tessier, Mahtomedi
     I have seen the sign for your shop many times and decided it was time to stop. I am so happy that I did. I bought three pieces and will either order on line or be back in person to purchase more. All the pieces are just beautiful and well done. It was nice to know that they can(but I probably won't) be put in the dishwasher. Thank you so much.
Sandie T, Mankato MN
     It was absolutely delightful to find your shop as we were on a road trip in North Dakota. Thank you Tama for taking the time to show me your work studio and answer all my questions about the unique look and artwork in your pottery. The colors are remarkable, I have not seen colors like this in pottery before. It was obvious that your skill in creating your own glaze was the key to the beautiful color. I bought two pieces today but I will be back for more. Thank you!
Joan Brown, Lubbock, Texas
     I am 80 yr.female widow, I LOVE the pottery, and am thinking about trying the handmade, but don't have a kiln, Keep up the good work, the colors are beautiful....

Virginia Lepage, Fargo
     Just received my third purchase from Prairie Fire Pottery - four of the 14 oz. mugs (2 in the earth and sky colors and 2 in blue/black.) My first was a large hand built piece in prairie fire and the second was candle holders in prairie fire. The hand built I purchased at the store (easy to get to off from I94)on a trip out west with my husband and the second and third were purchased over the Internet. I am never disappointed and all have been beautiful pieces for our home. I already have my eye on the next piece that I want to purchase. Tama is just a wonderful person to work with - so helpful and patient.

     On out trip out west this summer my husband saw your sign so we decided to stop. Good choice. Been purchasing pottery for years as gifts and for our home. Loved the beautiful unique colors of yours and the way they were done. Had pieces shipped and when we returned there was the box and the way it was wrapped all in perfect condition. Can't wait to see the reactions of these gorgeous pieces we are giving this Christmas. So glad he saw your sign and we stopped!!

Don "Pop" Ehreth, Fairfax, Virginia
     What a neat discovery that just demonstrates again that the real beautiful parts of a vacation is not what you see from the InterStates, its the treasures that one finds in the small and exceptionally friendly little towns off the InterState. Tama, her husband, and my new young friend, Kristi, and the Prairie Fire Pottery shop is what America is all about. Stop and find your own treasures at this neat shop of art.
Gail, Bismarck, ND

BeLinda Schlichting, Wildomar, CA
     This past sunday (7/11/10) my husband & I were out to Golva to see our next road work job. He had promised to take me to Medora afterward but it got to late. So he decided to check out your town of Beach and when I saw you little store I screamed "STOP"! I told him it won't take long... Ha -Ha was he surprised. I did not want to leave, the beauty that filled my eyes! How amazing. I was greeted by your niece and two of your very loving cats. You sure do put your love in every piece. I am more excited to come back to visit your store again than I am about Medora.
Don & Fadiah Parsons, Torquay,Sk. Canada
     We saw your sign on the highway on our way back home from Medora, so we stopped by for a look. What a treasure we found! The pieces we bought are absolutely beautiful and look even better in our home.Your sense of colour is magnificent! I can see that we will be going through Beach on our way to Medora from now on. Looking forward to our next visit. Fadiah.

Tracy Forehand, Lexington Park, MD
     I just received the spoon rest and tile I ordered. The photos in the website don't do them justice. They are fantastic. I especially love the cat's paw print in the tile. Right before Christmas I ordered 3 Star Candle holders to give as gifts. My daughter and co- workers love theirs. The 3rd was a Secret Santa gift and 2 people fought over who should get it. I must say, the Northern Lights bowl will always be my favorite. Thanks Tama.

     Tama, Need a housewarming gift for a friend that once stopped with me at your store. She still takes about the beautiful colors and craftsmanship. She is going to flip when she opens what I've just ordered from you. So love your pottery and your beautiful shop/web site. Have a great tourist season & I'll be stopping in next time through Beach.
Ann Bradford, Cedar Hill Texas
      I have arrived back home and opened the Prairie Fire Pottery package you have sent. The best packing I have ever seen!
Linda and Jim Ertel, Chalfont, PA
     Our pottery arrived today, and I had to let you know how excited we are with it. The green that shows up on both pieces is just beautiful - I think they may be the prettiest pieces we've gotten from you. Keep in touch and thanks.

     I bought the sponge holder and I love it!
     As is Michelangelo to a canvass. As is Mozart to classical music. So is Tama to pottery. True artist is their profession. For those who enjoy an appreciation of art.

     We signed the wall in 2006 with our friends from London. Enjoyed your shop and the several pieces I have.
Jessica Worster,
     Last weekend, my family and I took our annual trip down to Iowa, to have our Christmas with my mom and stepdad. My mom kept telling me, "You and Kelvin have another gift coming, but it's not here yet." I forgot that I sent her your website and some ideas for pieces that I'd like. We ended up leaving about 5 hours later than planned because of bad weather, but in those 5 hours, she had discovered a package in her garage (the UPS guy must have come while we weren't home) and it was two pieces that I really wanted, and she bought one for herself that matched ours. I got a spoon rest and the matching blue utensil holder, and she got the square bowl, all matching. I just wanted to tell you that I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM!! I will definately be purchasing more as money comes our way! I love your work, it's magical and knowing that my mom has another piece that matches ours, is a wonderful feeling. We've always lived so far away from them, so anything that keeps them close at heart is welcomed. So, thank you for bringing my mother and I closer. Oh, and I did give her the Beautiful Women of North Dakota book, so she feels like she knows you too!
Shirley Conrad, Rapid City SD
     I bougth a very unique rock candle from Tama several years ago and lost a couple of rivets that you need to burn it. I called her and she sent me replacements immediately. Not only do you have beautiful items, you have a first class customer service policey. Thanks so much.
Peggy Nordgaard, Bismarck, ND
     They arrived and are beautiful! I'm giving them as Christmas gifts and am sure everyone will love them. My son, a photographer for WDAY in Fargo did a story on the author of "Beautiful Women of ND" and recognized you in it! Congratulations. Good for you!
Mark A. Zimmerman, Bismarck, ND

Linda & Gene Crouch, Empire, Michigan
     We stopped at your shop in July after we saw a beautiful pottery display at the rest stop and the lady told us where to go to find your shop. What a wonderful surprise. We love the west landmarks and we bought a piece of your work to bring home to our house to remind us of the great landmarks we saw on our trip to the western side of the U.S. Your pottery is a great reminder of a great vacation we had. Thank You. You have a beautiful shop. We will be back.
Linda & Gene Crouch,
Walter G. Ensign, Ashland, OR
     We received the Blue Mugs last week in perfect condition, of course, due to superb packing. They are just what we wanted and are beautiful. As we intend them for our summer cottage in New Hampshire, I did not unpack them completely, leaving them taped to the cardboard, and intend to ship them in your packaging when we head back there next summer. Thank you so much for letting us know when they became available!
Noreen Linke,
     I just returned home from a long vacation to find the box from you with the beautiful Northern Lights Bowl. This was a great and wonderful surprise. I love it, and I appreciate your thoughtfulness so very much. This is exactly the bowl I had hoped to receive in my last order. Thank you for this beautiful and unexpected gift. I will display it with pride in my home. I am always pleased with the level of service you provide and this is another example of why. Many, many thanks!
Jennifer, Seattle
     Just wanted to let you know that I picked up one of your lovely bowls in a thrift store about 7 years ago, and have loved it ever since. Just happened to be cleaning it and looked up the studio. Although I had never heard of you when I bought the bowl, I've always loved it - the glaze is so beautiful. Looks like it was fired in 96. Thank you for making such beautiful, unusual tings!
Joyce Burns, Grove Oklahoma

Pam Anderson,
     I LOVE the small plate I just received from you! The colors are fabulous – I especially like the unexpected green and purple and the spots are wonderful counterpoint to the flowing lines. It looks just like I expected so your online catalog is good. I will be back for more! I live in a very “arty” area and have exposure to lots of pottery but yours is the only one I’ve purchased for a long time. Keep up the good work! Your packaging is delightfully, effectively simple and the chocolate was a great touch. First class, professional all the way. I am a quiltmaker and am originally from North Dakota.

Cecil Steed, Charleston
     I received the delivery of the "spoon crock" in very good condition. It is beautiful. I envy you in North Dakota, because you don't have to deal with the constant threat of hurricanes. I promise that when a hurricane finally hits Charleston I will carry your spoon crock as I wade away in waist-deep water, and I will hold a sign telling of your Prairie Fire Pottery. You will be known nationally on television!
Diane Jackson, Zionsville, Indiana

     Lucky me - I actually signed the wall in your lovely shop. My wife loves the bowl I bought. She misses her horses and the blue bowl with the horse in the bottom is perfect. It might have been because "the kiln speaks" as you so eloquently told me, but I believe you had a bit to do with it as well. We shall buy more. You bet.

     I left out that Ruth is Major Baily's sister, his only surviving sibling. What an honor it was to present her with one of your beautiful pitchers. Now I have to get two more more Ruth's daughters.
Kenneth Bailey, Sidney, MT
     On the Feb 21st I delivered a beautiful blue pitcher to the Major Kenneth D. Bailey, USMC. Ruth absolutely loved the pitcher as did her daughters. Please read a short bio on the Major below: Major Kenneth D. Bailey was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor on 24 March 1943, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt during a special ceremony at the White House, for heroic conduct during action in the Solomon Islands. The medal was presented to Maj Bailey's wife. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions during an intense battle to repulse the enemy at Henerson Field on Guadalcanal.

     Having lived in North Dakota for some eleven years, I believe I've earned thr right to say.....I didn't think I'd ever find anything so beautiful in North Dakota. Your high temperature fired kilns have produced colors and visual joy only rivaled by your neighbor, the Badlands. Keep up the good work!

How about a sign with directions to the studio at that first stop sign that brings you into town? We nearly gave up, but thankfully continued looking. Beautiful work. best wishes, Mike and Barb

     Visited your store in mid-July. I was so pleased to meet you both, and very much appreciated your encouragement in pursuing my own potting pursuits. The mug I bought sits in a spot where I can always see it, reminding me of beautiful western ND and your gorgeous pottery, and also gives me inspiration to one day create something, I hope, as beautiful. Thank you.
