Greater Flamingo

- by Dawn Lee Thompson

This week's theme: Be Kind To Your Web Footed Friends

For a duck may be somebody's mother. Or a pelican, or a swan, or any other bird with webbed feet.


Art: Greater Flamingo by Artist Dawn Lee Thompson
This large and impressive bowl, 15" in diameter, really makes a statement. It features vibrant hues of pink, salmon and green, set against a smoky iridized ground. This bowl will hold its own as the centerpiece on a large table or be an eye catching accent anywhere in your home. The process for this piece includes hand cutting and fitting, then detailing with glass overlay, kiln firing into a single heavy glass disc, slowly cooling to anneal the layers of glass, then re-firing to slump to a large bowl. Each of my pieces is a one-of-a-kind original work, hand crafted with love!
