349 – Raku Bowl Mandala

Raku Bowl by Rebecca Arthur
Raku Bowl by Rebecca Arthur

Corvallis watercolorist and ceramic artist, Rebecca Arthur, created this beautiful mystical bowl. I love the dreaminess of this piece. And get this…she paints with smoke and fire! What a fascinating effect. I especially appreciate the “dot” on the right side with little light dots radiating out from it. This feels like a sacred bowl.

About herself and her art she states:

After earning my degree and working in architecture, I became a furnituremaker. I incorporated O’Keeffe’s motto “Simplify, Eliminate, Emphasize” as the theme in my work. Then I discovered clay. Being also an abstract painter, the clay vessels became my three-dimensional canvasses, sensuous and tactile.

In writing this post about Rebecca and her art, I learned that she either hand builds or wheel throws her creations…and sometimes they are a combination of the two. Regardless, because of her in-the-moment process each piece is unique…like us.

Rebecca’s art reminds us all that we are each a unique expression of the same process/design.
