these are the very first bowls that i ever made, 15 years ago. my work hasn't really changed all that much from then to now . . . and i'm not exactly sure WHAT that implies ?! all i know is that i could never achieve that refined perfection in my work . . . that glossy finish that only potter's potters have. i suppose my work simply reflects my personality AND my fred flintstone way of life . . . . W I L M A !!!!!!!
