You can’t live in the Lodi Appellation and avoid the build up of anticipation for the grape harvest. It starts at the beginning of summer, as the grapes begin to take shape on the vine. As harvest nears, passers by can see the fruit visible from the road as they drive past mile after mile of vineyards. In Fall, just as the summer heat is at its peak, wine making fever takes over. It’s harvest time. The annual festival is on and hundreds of wineries hold grape stomp events in which adventurous souls step into the vat and stomp the juice from grapes with bare feet. This bowl hails from the Lodi Appellation – an area that is world-renown for its wine. The reclaimed glass is steeped in deep grape purple pigments and finished in a variegated metal foil. 9″ Diameter
Bring the warmth and camaraderie of a summer campfire to your home or interior decor. Inspired by summer bonfires and gatherings of friends and family, this bowl is created with kiln-formed reclaimed glass, pigments and metal foil. Measures 9″ diameter.
Recently, I was commissioned to make a rainbow bowl for an enchanting cabin in the woods. (I know it is enchanting because I got to see photos of it.) After the commission was underway, it was cancelled in favor of a larger bowl already in stock. I was relieved at the change of course since I was juggling one too many plates (or, in this case, bowls.) Once things settled down, I finished the design of the bowl and turned it into a limited production piece. Why didn’t I think of a rainbow bowl before? Rainbows tend to mean different things to different people. For me, it reminds me of my time as a pre-teen when rainbows and unicorns adorned almost all my worldly possessions, especially my sticker collection. It represents a time of innocence, just before life came on in full force. Whatever a rainbow means to you, I hope you’ll join me in appreciating the uniqueness in this bowl, and the uniqueness in anyone else who might also appreciate it.
Recycled glass, pigments and variegated metal foils are combined to create this 16.5″ diameter art vessel.
This piece is not really new, but it’s new to the internet. Actually it was one of the few pieces not sold at Simone Beckett, one of my favorite galleries in the Bay Area that has been pushed out by rising overhead and gentrification. (sigh.) RIP Simone Beckett. Thank you for always looking out for not just me, but your clients. You did a wonderful job of keeping me in the loop while you placed my work in some of the finest interiors around. Many many thanks. I sincerely hope that Simone Beckett finds another affordable space because Drew and Casey do art galleries the way art galleries should be done.
