A bounty of bowls

In preparation for Fiona and my Paths to Peace and Stillness exhibition in August-September some things are being created in multiples.

Over the last little while this has included making bowls of various sizes for various purposes.

Three leaf foldformed bowls for incense burners.

And larger bowls that will hold Fiona's porcelain peace and stillness scrolls.

  1. They say ideas breed ideas. You are always coming up with new ones Barry. The incense burners have turned out so well.

    1. R - thanks - I think the incense burners have a little of the temple look about them. B

  2. Peace in multiple is a very good thing!!
