Bowl on Stand

Dave Humphries

Myrtle Veneer, perspex
50mm (h) x 300mm (w) x 350mm (d)

Bowl on Stand is a clever design, dealing with form and position. The contrasting shapes of this bowl and its stand are in fact perfectly matched. The bowl and base were initially formed as a single surface. The bowl was then cut out and its position reversed. It is supported by a Perspex frame, which holds the base and the bowl in position and allows the bowl to appear as if it is floating or suspended. The frame also provides the strength required to function effectively as a vessel.
