    "CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
    CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION A large, almost hemispherical bowl with a narrow flat rim. The bowl is supported by three tall, hollow, tubular feet. Each foot, which is joined to the bowl by a slightly angled "knee," has a thin round rib at its base. Technically the bowl appears to be a composite work, with the bowl hand built and the legs wheel-thrown.
