It was in 1992...FDA, Dept of Health and Human Services, Public Health
Services, from out of Atlanta...definetly federal...Freeman asked how he
found us, at home our studio and he said "we have our ways"...He only
tested for lead. We told him we didn't use lead and he said well I'm
going to test anyway. The only nice thing he said was that potters always
have nice music on!...we've heard that before from electricians etc.
