More Bowls…

A few more from back in the hospital “Expressive Therapist” days.

I thought of this one as “the blue brain.” A coil pot, woven randomly together.

BLUE-BRAIN

This is a drum, which can have a goat (or similar) skin stretched across the opening and fastened through the “eye” holes around the lip. I never found goat skin. I rolled out lengths of clay and the I wove the pieces together.

DRUM-BOWL

And this is a bowl that was a gift to some dear friends. Ribbons of clay woven into the form of the bowl.

Tiles

Many years ago, I worked in a geriatric hospital and nursing home, where I facilitated drum circles and made pottery/art with the residents. I just rediscovered some old things I made, such as these kitchen tiles.
