One-fo-a-Kind Bowl: Spring Ride

Flat disc, pre-slumping stage of Spring Ride.

My friend Cam commissioned me to make a bowl for his wife Denise for Christmas-- she's a really great cyclist, so the theme was 'something to do with biking'... (but not the Harley Davidson kind!). This impressionistic group of cyclists going out for a ride in the hills appeared just-about-in-time-for-Christmas! (But it did arrive in one piece, thank you Canada Post!!)

The dark green field with wild flowers in the foreground is harder to see in this light; I think that for optimal viewing pleasure, it might be best to have it on a stand that can sit on a windowsill (or some other place where light can get through, and all the colours come out).
