lidded tree bark bowl



This piece represents the evolution of style and design. The bowl is stamped in the traditional swift creek style. For the base I made the bark stamp out of clay. By mirroring a section of dogwood bark with clay, the living tree helps to tell the story. The base represents the actual physical appearance of the tree while the lid represents the divine creation that is within. Perhaps the lid can be seen as an intuitive rendering of tree cells magnified 1000 times. This piece is available through Native American Collections.
