Art: Holding a Crouch by Artist Dawn Lee Thompson
This bowl is part of a series of female nude pieces exploring both physical and emotional vulnerabilities in the context of long term relationships. The physical and emotional parallels are clear in the open crouch pose; both physically uncomfortable to hold, and emotionally painful in exposing all. Outwardly elegant and strong looking, but a very vulnerable position to maintain. This bowl was constructed with Bullseye art glas; meticulously hand cut, ground and assembled then kiln fired to fuse the individual pieces into one sheet of glass, then kiln fired again to slump into an elegant platter. It is 8" in diameter and approx 1.25" deep. It was slumped on a "ball" mold, with no foot, so the bottom is perfectly rounded and balanced. (It will spin if you turn it.) It was very difficult to get a good color read in photographing this piece. The background glass is a very deep translucent purple, that often looks black unless backlit, with circle accents a vibrant chartreuse. The figure is opaque blue green with black shadows. Each of my vessels is a one-of-a-kind, original work of art.
