Sanchez, Russell – Mini Gunmetal Gourd Bowl

1"w x .5"h

$ 525.00

WOW!  There are miniatures and then there is this miniature gourd bowl by Russell Sanchez!  It is coil built and indented with six “gourd” sections.  Note how deep and round the indentions are for the size!  The entire piece is fully polished and fired a nearly gunmetal coloration.  The “gourd bowl” is named after the gourd sections used to scrape the inside of the bowl when it is being built.  The mini bowl is signed on the bottom in the clay, “Russell”.  It is amazing when a potter can make pieces at this very, very small size and yet have the precision as if they were much larger!  Shipping included.
