Bowl

Catalogue Description:
Globular bowl in the form of a seed pod with a small circular mouth (1 3/4 inches). Overall design of body is black-on-white five-pointed star, the center of which is the circular mouth. The rest of the star occupies approximately 75% of the bowl's surface and contains stepped zigzag forms creating triangles that are either filled in with fine, close parallel lines or solid black color. When the pot is turned upside down the negative white space of the bottom becomes the shape of a solid white five-pointed star.
