Brookings Beachy Bowls

I put my Brookings Beach Bowls into the Manley Art Center located in Brookings, Oregon. These bowls are hand built pottery. I fire them twice. The second firing, I add sand to the glaze. It gives them a "beachy" finish.

The bowls were created with pottery kelp and starfish. I gave the starfish movement by having each leg in a different position. The glazes are soft blues, yellows, greens and red. Ocean inspired.

Each is signed and numbered. I hope they are a success. I only made a limited amount. I am not into production. Now I have to dream of new pieces to create.
