I'm pretty sure this is Becky Crisswell of Calera, AL, who shows up in a Google search as displaying her work in Oxford, as lately as 2007. She shows up with Susan Brown Freeman in 2007 as one of the honored artists by the Alabama State Council on the Arts.
Hey, at least I seem to be attracted to the potters who go on to make a good name for themselves! Maybe some reader from Oxford who is into pottery can help me find the current address, phone, email or website for Becky Crisswell.
My often repeated phrase that we all know by heart by now: "I want to buy more of her work!"
I'm sure it is bake proof and dishwasher proof as most pottery is these days, but I want to hand wash my pieces. It is like petting a fur coat...an irresistible impulse!
Many of you have shared photos or names of potters you collect. You are driving me crazy in the same way it feels when Gordon strokes my hair or when, as a child, Mama combed the hair at the nape of my neck with her fingers during quiet times. A delicious, tingly, drive you crazy sensation!
For those who are not into this Pottery Passion, I promise we are about 55 percent finished with photographs of my collection. I'll start intermingling the posts with something different. *wink*
No one has complained. I just know hand thrown or hand made pottery is not everyone's "thing".
Sewing and quilting and Westies will also return to this blog, I assure you. We are still pushing on two specific pottery deadlines, so I feel guilty if I take time to sew.
Did you see these other blog posts about potters whose work I collect?
