BURNING BOWLS AND BEAUTY
Oceana Burning Bowl
I just finished two new burning bowls that I think you will like. The first one is called “Oceana.” I used a conch shell necklace along with several other shells that I had been saving for her. She is 5" wide x 6" deep x 10"high.
The second burning bowl is of Frida. I always love creating Frida. She was so vibrant and of course loved her flowers. I used several antique pins as her headpiece. She is one of my originals in stoneware clay. I used stained glass for the basin. She is a bit smaller than Oceana. She is 4" x 4" x 8" high.

On to Beauty. I was lamending about a beautiful pot I had mosaiced years ago. It always looked charming in the garden. Last year, I forgot or rather neglected to bring it inside. We had a very cold winter with sub zero temperatures and the terra cotta under the tiles buckled. End result was that the tiles peeled away little by little. At first I was disappinted but when I looked closer, I found the terra cotta had a beautiful coating of green mold growing on the outside. It looks as though it has been sitting in a forgotten garden for ages now and I have grown to love the look. Just proof that if you are unhappy with the way something in life looks on the outside, peer a little closer. There may be untold beauty within.
The two featured Burning Bowls are $68. each. I accept Paypal or personal check. You can e-mail me and we can go from there. Thank you so much.
