Victorino, Sandra – Bowl with Wild Flower Designs
Sandra Victorino is a niece of noted potter Dorothy Torivio. Sandra has her own unique style of “op-art”, where the patterns start small, then get larger, and then smaller again on the vessel. This bowl has a classic wildflower pattern. It is painted in nine rows around the bowl and in each row, the flowers are smaller! They are separated by thinly painted hatchwork areas. The intricacy of the designs and the use of the op-art imagery adds to the sophistication of the bowl. The piece is signed, “S. Victorino”. It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, restoration, or repair.
