They are the earliest evidences of humans found in archaeology, made across multi cultures and ages.
I collect them.
I could eat every meal out of them.
I love making them.
I've sold a lot of them.
Everybody likes bowls.
I don't think they are appreciated enough.
Every bowl made by an artist has a personality of it's own.
No two bowls are alike, even if they are made as a set. And why should they? They are like siblings in a family: Related, but individuals--that's the best kind of set to have, to my mind.
Besides, slight variations make a set of bowls so much more interesting than identical ones, to my mind.
This was in a museum show. I still have it.
This one belongs to someone somewhere.
Not the best shot, but the only one I have of a "Glaze Room Floor" glaze I loved while it lasted.
Great Coyote glaze inside called Rhubarb. Really nice paired with the sage green.
I like to use small bowls to test glazes. And why not? I get a much better read of how the glaze behaves and a good bowl to boot.
Probably should be making 2 bowls to test--I Could sell one and keep one, right?
The "Viking Bowl" design. Love rimmed bowls, but they don't stack well in a cabinet. The Coyote light shino broke well on the rim, though. Great for sloppy eaters.
Ah, my throwing mistake. The rim ran away from me, but I loved it. I wish I still had this bowl, but it got dropped and is no more.
The previous and these two were made for a charity sale to support guide dog training.
A joke gets old when it's in porcelain, but the dogs don't mind.
Huh, you wish.
*This is a very tiny bowl. It's a joke too. Chicken or egg kinda thing.
Tiny bowls are great for saving a half tomato. Just turn it over and put it in the bowl.
Little bowls are great for sea salt, dipping sauce--anything extra on the table like garnish, spice or extra seasoning.
*I know I've posted this before. Sorry. I hate repetition. Can you guess?
This last bowl is one of my favorites. I use it a lot. This form stacks well in the cupboard too.
