This new bowl by Johnathan is hand coiled, stone polished, traditionally fired outdoors, fully polished, and incised. The coloration Johnathan achieves is from the firing, as he it is takes it out of the manure, early so that instead of turning black, it remains a darker brown. His intricate incising comes to life against this deep brown highly polished surface.

This “flat” bowl lends itself beautifully as a canvas for Johnathan’s incising. I learned a bit about hummingbirds, and I found out that they have a very high metabolism and must eat all day long just to survive. So here, those birds are in action, drinking nectar.

There are also groups of butterflies in flight as well as fields of flowers. The lip of the bowl has a scalloped, carved matte design, while the bottom of the bowl I s beautifully polished. There is an incised border design below the flowers. This is a lovely composition of realistic elements.
