Stunning – magnificent – unique – creative – labor intensive – striking – are all appropriate terms to use to describe this new lidded bowl by Russell. He has created such a round piece – that our eyes focus on the movement that is expressed by the color contrasts and use of Heishi. There is a beautiful balance created between the polished areas and the sparkly matte/mica work. The turquoise stone used as the eye of the serpent just “pops” visually. The graceful coiling and polishing of the narrow bottom is exceptional. And then there is the lid- a piece of art in its own right! The polished round top of the lid balances with the polished band that sits on the bowl. The added turquoise stone on top matches the eye of the avanyu, and the added mixed Heishi shell blends with the three strands below. It is really a beautiful new one of a kind accomplishment by Russell.
