My friends Rose and Donnell from Bakersfield visited the studio recently and purchased a noodle bowl for their son, Aaron. He was a fellow artist with my son at the Bakersfield School of Art when they were just kids.
It's great to sell a piece -- but even better when it's going to be used by a family friend who is also an awesome artist. Rose does pastel paintings and ceramic functional work, in addition to being a therapist specializing in using art in her practice.
Thanks Rose and Donnell!
The noodle bowl form, pictured at left, was one I "borrowed" after seeing it in Clay Times (I think)... It was a winning idea in a competition the magazine presented for new functional ware. Great idea so I played with variations of it. I no longer have the artist's name or source.
