Yes is the answer

A friend gave us this bowl many years ago. It's a perfect bowl for keeping clementines in around the holidays, and other special things. The bowl was made by ceramic artist Rae Dunn in Berkeley, California. On a whim, I checked out her web site on the internet recently to see if she was still there. She is.

On the back side of the bowl is her signature, in the same stamped type-face letters, followed by a period.

It's an interesting concept, getting to the bottom of the bowl only to see the message, "YES." But in French. It kind of reminds me of Yoko Ono's 1966 art piece that captured John Lennon's imagination. It was a ladder above which was written, in tiny letters on the ceiling, the word "Yes." People had to climb the ladder and use a magnifying glass to see the message.

  2. I love your bowl! My clementine bowl is blue-green and decorated with turtles, inside and out (turtles all the way down, if you will).

Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
