When I started working in my Dad's studio, I started with what I was comfortable with: Hand building. I was also in love with all of the commercial glazes. #1 you know how they will look on your finished piece and #2 I just love sparkly objects :). I made this half bowl over a year ago. I have displayed it in many ways with many holders at 4 of my last shows - but it never sold. A month ago, I was playing around at welding class and made a unique bowl holder that I thought would complement a less than sparkly bowl. (That's another story). Yesterday, as my mind was dreaming, I just new that I had found a new match. It's as though the metal sculpture was designed around the shape of the vessel. Let me know what you think.
