This bowl is designed with the number seven mind. The Cherokee have seven Clans and the Anishinaabe have seven teachings. I often use this sacred number in my art. The black background emboldens the colors in the floral pattern.
Materials: Beechwood bowl, acrylic paint, wood burning
Technique: This bowl's main consideration was the implementation of strong colors in the midst of a more traditional woodland pattern. With that in mind the black is an important addition to make the patterned colors really stand out.
Size: 7 inch
