        They were painted with black acrylic paint and then white. The white paint was sanded down to the black in places, leaving a swirling effect. The swirls reminded me of a prairie snow storm.

       

        The cracks or checks are held together using copper and brass wire epoxied in place.

 PRAIRIE STORM                    

    

      Made from green elm, copper and brass wire, acrylic paint, clear finish: turned painted  and sanded.

       The bows were turned fairly thin using green wood. The bottoms were left  rounded so the bowls would not sit level. They were left to dry out for a week, causing them to warp and crack in places.    (con't)
