Art: Drawing Inward 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 pose of the figure in this platter depicts the signs of an emotional withdrawal into self-protectiveness while attempting to maintain physical availability. This bowl was mostly constructed with very old, (from the early '80's) Bullseye art glass, that I was fortunate enough to find at an auction. It has many interesting characteristics not found in contemporary, more perfected fusing glass. Each piece was 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. This is a large and heavy piece; 14.25 inches in diameter and 2.25 inches deep with an elegant angle to the sides and subtle stabilizing foot. Monitor settings may vary, and glass is notoriously difficult to photograph. The colors are deep charcoal with white streaks in the background, soft gray circle accents, and a terra cotta pink/brown for the figure with black shadows. It makes an impressive statement as the focal piece on a table or display shelf. Each of my vessels is a one-of-a-kind, original work of art.
