This new round bowl is hand coiled and traditionally outdoor fired. It is a gorgeous multicolor bowl showing an incised bear in the center medallion with a heart line. A wonderful checkerboard pattern is centered between two strands of superfine jet Heishi. Then the stunning deep red/terra cotta tone is bordered by Russell’s trademark dots. The slipped tones of green, black, and red make this so special. The firing was outstanding, as the bowl has a gun metal silvery cast to it. By looking at the backside, you can see the beautiful polishing work. There is an accent piece of black jet in the eye. This is such a marvelous composition.
