I am tickled pink...or tickled pink pottery! (OK, that turn of phrase is a bit of a stretch, but the wet clay is a little pinkish in the picture below? Maybe?)
Becky Bolton Crisswell of Calera, Alabama, sent me a note listing a few of her upcoming shows! Thank you Becky!
I've missed the October 4th show in Hoover, AL, and I don't see gas prices letting us hop over to Northport, AL, by October 18 and 19th.
If any of my blog readers are going to the October 18 and 19th Kentuck Festival in Northport, AL, please let me know.
2588 Highway 67
Calera, AL 35040-3427
That matches the address on the envelope I received from Becky.
(Why do I feel like I am suddenly an FBI agent on an episode of Without A Trace?)
Then at the bottom of Becky's note, she lists two shops that carry her work, so I looked up the contact info:
3365 Morgan Dr
Vestavia Hills, AL 35216
So, if you see a platter like my catfish casserole dish from Becky, please tell her to set it aside for me!
Thanks to Paul and Becky and others who have emailed to help me locate this wonderful potter!
As an artist (in a different medium), I can certainly understand why Becky no longer takes orders. Thankfully she is still making the catfish design! Save me more of this design, Becky (vase, pitcher, several platters).
