To All The Bowls I've Loved Before

Wednesday, 23 September 2009

To all the bowls I once caressed
And may I say they've held the best
Local concord grapes in a bunch
They've even served my lunch
To all the bowls I've loved before...

I collect studio pottery but I have a thing in particular for bowls. I love having bowls in all shapes and sizes because I'm a snacker, a grazer, and a nosher extraordinaire. And when friends come over, I'm known for giving great nosh. I also care that my serving bowls are stunners - that they're art; each one of a kind.

But this bowl - it will remain empty upon my counter so I may gaze upon it's beauty. I will bow my head and pray before it. I will weep in gratitude of it's many hand-made blessings. (Now read that back again imagining Yul Brynner's voice from The Ten Commandments)

I found this bowl at the wonderful Ravenswood Antique Market in Chicago, where the owner and curator John, has impeccable taste and where I just happened to have a store credit! John had just brought it into the store within the hour when it caught my eye and I scooped it up without hesitation. It's a studio piece from Greece made during the mid-sixties.

Ravenswood carries exquisite vintage jewelry, furniture, art, objects, kitchen and barware and they're open seven days a week. It's a one-of-a-kind shopping destination, so check it out.
