A Big Wooden Bowl of Cloth Fragments

Written on September 7, 2011

Today I’m showing a little more “local color”–a corner of the showroom where a big, wooden bowl of cloth fragments sits.The bowl is gorgeous when seen on its own: it’s large, hewn from one piece of wood and shows a metal repair on the lip.  It was originally used for mixing buckwheat flour dough to make soba noodles.Odds and ends find their way to this bowl, and the pieces are offered for sale–come visit and dig through.  The bowl is particularly full now: its contents vary from week to week.Above is a nice piece of patched katazome cloth.  Below is a nice view onto the repaired lip of the soba making bowl.Today’s diffused light made good illumination for this bowl of cotton pieces.

    Ah, what a dreamy giveaway this would be. I have a similar bowl in my studio filled with my remnants. The bowl was carved by my mother, I love adding to it every day.
