The Bears are at the Lake

 I imagine myself entertaining at my imaginary woodland cabin in the foothills.  This is the perfect centerpiece for my table - a unique, one-of-a-kind ceramic bowl for floating candles.  Look how the candlelight reflects off of the bears!

The bottom of the bowl is glazed a rich dark blue and there are raised white stars - the night sky.  And it seems that it's the summer night sky because of the full rich green leaves.

I can't tell you why I have totally ignored scale in this piece.  Clearly the leaves are way too big for the bears, or vice versa.  But I just didn't care.  For me, it's not bothersome.  The bears are clearly in the woods. This is a decorative piece and the rules of reality are banished!


  1. Ik vind dit een mooie schaal , de beertjes staan er zo schattig bij...
    het is inderdaad niet simpel om de juiste verhoudingen volgens de regels te maken, maar dat hoeft eigenlijk toch ook niet .

  2. Thanks, Simonne,
    Yes, I agree! What is our artistic license worth if we can't portray things as we wish to see them!
