The original inspiration for the bowls I currently make are Japanese tea bowls. They can range from elegant to rustic with many variations in between. Of course my bowls are much larger than traditional tea bowls.
I like to change up the sizes and make some of them symmetrical and others asymmetrical. I like to play around with different textures on the surface of the bowls. I use different colored glass frit and powders, gold and silver leaf, foil, and chips of dichroic glass.
