100 Bowl Reunion

The How Many Bowls? show was a great party!  Thanks to all of the turners who made it back with their bowls.  Mark turned the 100th bowl in the gallery on Saturday to a cheering crowd.  Special thanks to Kini Collins for her help in setting the show.  And thanks to Dan & Liz Schiavone for their hospitality at Schiavone Fine Art.

They didn't all make it....

Our goal was to turn 100 bowls from one pine tree.  You'll see if you make it to the show this weekend that some of the bowls didn't quite make it through to the finish.  These are two of Mark's.  Any other turners who haven't brought there bowls by because they aren't perfect, we don't care.  It's all part of the process.  These two will  be on display at the show.  We  may even have pretzels in them!

Schiavone Fine Art

The How Many Bowls? show is from 1 - 4 pm on both Nov. 19 & 20th.  Schiavone Fine Art at 244 S.  Highlandand Ave is not far from the shop.    The gallery is an old Moose Lodge that's been restored by it's owners, Dan & Liz Schiavone.  It's worth the trip over just to see the beautiful restoration.
Plenty of great restaurants nearby if you're making a day of it.  On Saturday you can walk to DiPasquale's  (open for lunch, closes at 6 pm)  and to The Laughing Pint (opens at 3 pm, open late) from the gallery.   We may head there after the show ourselves.

Pine Bowl Glamour Shots

The pine bowls are looking good.  Especially when photographed by Kim Brock who took these shots when she was visiting from Grand Rapids, Michigan last week.  We'll be showing more of Kim's photos at the gallery show next weekend.

Sanding Day

Mark gave Bowl #71 a final sanding today.  Cut from the base of the tree it measures in at 22" across the top.  It was good to see Remy today, who put the finishing touches on Bowl #6.  Thanks Bob, Trudy, Donna, Jerry, John, Brian, Tim, Stacy Dan, Kini, Sue, and Tina for getting your bowls to us before the November 13th deadline.  They'll each have a special spot in the show.
