Red Clay bowl diameter is right at 6 inches. Height is 4 3/4 inches. Gallery purchase in Santa Fe, New Mexico in 1990. The above picture on the writer's monitor (set for native resolution) measures 6 1/8 inches. We will try to provide a side by side comparison with the Panther bowl in several days using close to actual dimensions.
Owner's detailed comments on bowl design and fabrication. Bowl "decoration has circular "laid brick" design around upper portion. A sharp object was used to carve "tributary / river" type tracks all around the outer bowl surface. These tracks then filled with a "black" substance; same black substance embedded in surface as large sources of "energy" from which the "tributaries" flowed out of or connected to other "energy" forms. All this done before final polishing and "heat cure" in oven. This owner is using his imagination, but the artist put it there someway.
Some of the "tributaries / rivers" and one of the "energy sources" refered to in the dialogue can be seen in the picture, although not as clear or sharp as they appear on the bowl.
