What else....bowls!


I must admit to still be obsessed with making bowls. Little bowls this time and one slightly bigger one - shown below (which in person is a lovely purple color, but looks a bit washed out here) Very dinosaur egg this one.
The ones below are thinner than my usual ones - and the back ones are really redder - like ripe apples. The smaller one has a yellow inside, then painted with gold interference paint and in person it looks luscious, the bigger one is painted gold inside. The one in the front is bluer, with gold interference paint over a light blue paint inside.

More shots below of the same ones - different poses.



I'm sure hoping that there are people at YART who like bowls. KJ - can you please rename the event "Yarbowls"?

It's been raining here for two days - cold and rainy and nasty after a week in Florida. I've got the heat on, and am about to go an collapse in front of a roaring (gas) fireplace.

And nap.....

Your bowls are delightfully beautiful. I visualize each YART person/customer/patron walking off with at least one if not more of your bowls (paid for of course!)...
Rainy here too!

This weather is the pits!!

wow! youve been busy! These are so great Mim, they look like little treasures. You are so smart starting so early for Yarbowl!

I hope your weather clears up soon, we've got rain here too, but right now I'm kind of liking it. Glad you had a good time in Florida!

Cold and rainy here too...

Wow! These are gorgeous, truly! Bowls are one of my favourite things...I am always drawn to bowls on display in the shops.

I love the big, thin edged bowl...the colour is scrumptious! xo
