500 Bowls: Contemporary Explorations of a Timeless Design
by Lark (Author)

Book Description
Five hundred inspiring variations on the simple functional bowl will fire up the imagination of potters everywhere! Displayed on each page are bowls that reinvent and reinterpret the form, and use an astonishing range of techniques from across the globe and through the centuries.  Even more important, every piece testifies to the artist's boundless creativity and inventiveness.  Kate Maury's delicate creation, made from wheel-thrown porcelain, features a graceful flower-like shape and subtle colors.  Leafy patterns play across the interior of Stephen F Fabrico's slab-built bowl with handles, while the image inside Anne Lloyd's "Cat and Dog Heaven" practically seems to tell a story.  Some, like Ruchika Madan's stoneware Fruit Bowl with Birds and Branches, are long and shallow, others, including Deborah Shapiro's Salad Set clearly show the influence of Japanese ceramics.  Captions give each bowl's size, as well as details on its material and glazes.
