Glow Bowls

Artist Statement: Strand of five white glowbowls strung on metal wire.
Total length is 3'6" (the first bowl hangs 18" from the top of the wire).
They are glazed on the inside so the wax will not leach through to the surface.
The outside of the *glowbowls* are left unglazed.

I designed and created my first strand of *glowbowls* in 1999. In the early days they were all made by hand, pinched into shape and then strung on to wire. Things have changed a little since then and now my *glowbowls* are slip cast with a white clay from molds that are made from original hand pinched shapes. They come in strands of five, seven and nine.

They stand alone by day as a hanging sculpture. The wire is so thin that they appear to float. At night put votive candles in them and watch them glow.

They can be used either indoors or outdoors.
