Telly AwardsThe Telly Awards has named Day of Discovery as a Bronze winner in the 34th Annual Telly Awards for their piece, titled “The Potter: Reflections of a Master Artisan.”

Viewers are also presented with an exciting demonstration of Blakeslee’s craft from his studio nestled along the Arkansas River in Colorado.

Presently, “The Potter” is available to be viewed online at www.dod.org. DVD copies of the story can also be ordered on the website of the Day of Discovery, which is part of the RBC Ministries family.
