Alison Starr - untitled bowl

Alison Starr - bowl
3 inches high x 8.5 inches diameter

I'd given James Michael and Alison Starr some grapefruit my father grew and hand-picked just a few days before. They're wonderful — the best grapefruit in the world. And Alison gave me this beautiful bowl. I was bowled over, no pun intended.

The shape and basics of the bowl are simple. The incised design is complex and color contrasting. Together, it is a beautiful bowl. I'm a big fan of simple, practical and beautiful. This works.
