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.
