Alabama makers help business recruiters tell state’s story in unique way

When it comes to courting new and expanding companies, Alabama’s business recruiters don’t have to look far for help.

They often turn to local artists, manufacturers and other makers when they want a special gift for company officials or international dignitaries, and they have plenty of options to choose from.

From delicate blown glass sculptures to creative handmade pottery, Alabama-made art has been carefully carried around the globe, as the state’s economic development team gifts it in far-flung locations.

Alabama-made products, and the people behind them, are key ambassadors for the state, said Greg Canfield, secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.
