500 Bowls: Contemporary Explorations of a Timeless Design


My Comments: 

As the title suggests ‘500 Bowls | Contemporary Exploration of a Timeless Design’ is a collection of 500 bowls from mainly American artists.  Stimulating, this book is a must have for the artist’s art book collection. As a painter, the vase is one of my favorite subjects to paint.  With bowls, the artist is free to let it go and create. 500 Bowls provide an array of sizes, shapes, and textures and not only for the ceramic artist.

The light and relaxing subject of this book also make it a great addition to any elegant coffee table.


Book description:

Most pages feature one artist and one creation.  Each bowl is depicted in a color photograph, name of the artist, medium, method, size and the photographer’s name.


My favorite bowls are from the following artists/page:

Jeff Kise | 359

Ryan J Greenheck | 343

Most elegant bowls

Susan B Goldstein | 319

Gale Golovan Rattner | 300

Ginny Conrow | 219

Stacking bowls

Brian Jensen| 238
