This unique bowl by Christopher Youngblood combines modern and classic imagery.  This bowl is a unique shape with an oval form. The shape is difficult to make, but works nicely for carving the melon ribs to extends across the surface at different angles.  Each rib is deeply carved into the clay, and then polished.  Each of the twelve ribs extends from the rim to the base, creating an “S” shape.  After the carving, the bowl is stone polished to achieve a high shine.  The bowl was traditionally fired a deep red coloration.  It is signed on the bottom, “Chris Youngblood”.
