Taking a look at what ends up in household bowls is a bit like having your head examined, isn't it? The things you put under glass are things that need to be protected, but bowls are restless, fluid, transient. They hold what you pick up along the way, for as long as you need them. They hold the moment. They're your everyday life.
Around here, a bowl's main job is to hold beads too nice to store away. But they share space with feathers and needles and stones. The solo earring. An origami balloon. Sea glass. Buttons made on a marathon button making afternoon.That unnamed thing that fell from a tree,
and leaves that will be beautiful for no more than a day.
