More plaster....another bowl

Plaster, walnut ink, sumi ink, watercolor, graphite and encaustic medium
4 1/2 inches

Making bowls has become almost meditative for me.
The process of getting my hands in the plaster
 and getting lost forming the bowl, is really is a pleasurable experience.
Once they are dry, then staining, painting, rubbing, sanding & etc. begins.
Lastly, they are coated with encaustic medium.
A bowl that is waiting in the wings
 will be the first of many experiments with cold wax and oils.
I can't wait to get started........
