Bowls & Basins

These bowls and basins are generally about 18" across and about 9" deep.  They are constructed from slabs and are the latest evolution of the inverted 'bowl within a bowl" design that I have been working with for more than ten years.  

Most recently i've been sculpting contoured ridges into the forms which accentuate the form and give the finished piece the feel of a geographical appearance. See the detail to the right. 

I'm working on finishes with more visual texture achieved through layers of engobes, underglazes and glazes and using different means of application.
