looking for a potter vitali or bitali (phonetic)

Saw some beautiful pottery yesterday in Austin, Texas -- water fountains and
candlesticks using large, colorful flower shapes. All I know about the
artist is one name -- Vitali or Bitali (this is a phonetic spelling only) --
and that the buyer met the artist in Baltimore, but that doesn't mean the
artist lives in Baltimore. Thinking the person may have shown at the
American Craft Council show, I looked at the exhibitor list but didn't see
any name near that, nor any photos with similar work. One of the fountains
had a turquoise base and a red poppy top; water bubbled out of the center of
the flower. Anyone with any info on who this might be, please let me know.
I would like to purchase their work for a new gallery.

Hi Joyce,

Although not mentioned on any of her sites, perhaps Tammy Vitale is the
artist who made the flower shaped fountains and candlesticks? She does
live in Maryland. You'll find contact information for her on a few of
these sites.
