|Cherry, 9"h X 10"w|
I started this bowl so long ago I don't remember exactly when. I roughed out the shape and then something else came up or I just lost steam in the effort. So it sat unfinished in a corner of the shop until late August of this year when I needed a project and decided to tackle it once again.
It is a play on the Chippendale ball and claw foot, enlarged and inverted, a design element featured on fine furniture built in the mid to late 18th century.
