boy, where has the month gone? I was really excited about this theme when Lesley announced it because I love drawing and making bowls.
When I lived in Austin I spent several years doing pottery. I think clay has to be my second favorite medium to work in after fabric.
If you are familiar with my work you'll probably see a lot of overlap of decorative motifs from my pottery to my quilts. I liked to glaze my pots very similarly to how I free motion-quilt.
I also loved carving the surface of my bowls, giving them texture in the same way I think quilting gives dimensional texture to the surface of a quilt.
This is a double wall bowl.
I also made a few bowls that weren't round.
I have always enjoyed drawing and designing bowls
I just wish I still had the time to make them too.
