Beautiful Bountiful Bowls Exhibition of Fine Craft
On view through June 26, 2021
St. Petersburg, Florida
“Beautiful Bountiful Bowls” is a juried exhibition of handmade bowls by outstanding contemporary fine craft artists. From around the state, 33 artists created 100 pieces in ceramics, fiber, glass, metal, and wood. Community programming (virtual and in-person) includes a singing bowl sound healing and demonstrations about creating bowls in clay and wood. Glass artist and gallery owner Duncan McClellan will present an in-depth look at glass blowing bowls.
Eric Folsom hand forges and brazes his bronze and copper bowls. He says, “These bronze and copper bowls contain ideas and stories. Within each of these bowls, I have tried to place stories about things that I have learned, seen, and experienced. Each hand-wrought piece is a word or a phrase that is a part of a sentence that tells the story. The bowls are also containers for objects which will continue to add to the story as time moves on.”
