Full Picture of Tala

Sold. Thank you Angie!

The name 'Tala,' is of Native American origin. It seemed an appropriate title for my latest burning bowl. For those of you who are new to my art blog, here is an explanation of what they are and how to use them.

Wolf Detail

Unity Church has a special ceremony each New Year’s Eve. A large bowl is placed at the altar and each member of the church is asked to write down problems or vices they wish to annihilate from their lives.. It could be a wish to quit smoking or drinking. It might be a desire to loose weight or to quit any of a number of addictions. Each person places their list into the bowl and at midnight, the bowl is lit. Everyone watches as the fire burns away all the troubles.


I created a smaller, more personal bowl in my burning bowl series. This is the first offered this year. I used stoneware clay to sculpt her and a wolf emblem and feathers as embellishment. Her basin is stained glass, which I fired in the kiln. Tala is 4”w x 4”d x 8 ½” high and her price is $68.00. If you are interested in purchasing her, please e-mail me and we can go from there. I prefer using Paypal or I take checks. Thanks so much for viewing!
