Daniel Bellow makes fine porcelain pottery in the barn behind his house in Great Barrington, which he exhibits and sells in fine galleries all over the country, in Anthropologie stores from LA to London, and at the studio, by appointment, where he accepts BerkShares. A former reporter and editor for The Berkshire Eagle, he still writes occasionally for the Berkshire Edge, where his wife, Heather Bellow, is the managing editor. They have two exceptional children who attend local schools and a former stray dog named Ringo. Bellow is very interested in the ideas of E.F. Schumacher and, despite decades of disillusionment in the newspaper business and elsewhere, in the possibility of a better world. He sees his work with BerkShares as a way of putting these ideas into practice.
