Jeffry Zachmann, kinetic sculptor, and Carl Zachmann, machine artist, are a father-son duo from Fergus Falls who have collaborated on many art projects during their careers. Jeff's pieces are sold all over the world and recently his 1,000th kinetic sculpture was put on display at the Kaddatz Gallery in downtown Fergus Falls. In 2015, Postcards made an award-winning story about the Zachmanns and now Postcards returns to learn about the new projects and experiences they've had in the seven years since. The program features a striking COVID-19 era kinetic sculpture fire pit that attracted a surprising amount of attention, a giant gumball machine sculpture in Las Vegas, and the brewery at the site of their new studio. Jeff Zachmann, his wife Deb, brewer Andy Beck, his wife Klara, and Klara’s parent’s, Scott and Kathy Wagnild, undertook the task of turning an old industrial building into a brewery and taproom called Fergus Brewing Co.

Clay Coyote Pottery began more than two decades ago with a vision to create a space to provide handmade, functional and affordable pottery in central Minnesota. In 2016, Morgan Baum and her husband Ian moved from Harlem in New York City to Hutchinson and bought the business that her mother Betsy Price had started with her business partner Tom Wirt. The year-round gallery carries handmade creations from artists across the country and serves as a small business incubator for emerging ceramic artists.
