State Fair Four Gallon Crocks
The 2015 Great Minnesota Get-Together is over but not forgotten… another perfect end to a perfect Minnesota summer.
Only four of these large four gallon crocks were custom made for the fair, one for each of the four State Fair Gift Shops, highlighting that part of the fair. These one-of-a-kind pieces were hand thrown by Master Potter Mark Connolly and hand painted by Evan Prescott.
