Large Ceramic Bowl with Stand
A show stopper, this handmade colorful, whimsical and sophisticated bowl and stand are functional art at its best. Painted inside and out with birds, animals, and other inspirations from nature, the bowl has 3 dimensional forms at its base, and is accented with gold leaf inside and out. The design around the edge of the stand and the gold leaf accents echo the design at the base of the bowl, and the stand sits on 4 small feet. Signed by Israeli artist Dori Schechtel Zanger.
Size: Bowl: 11″ diam x 10 1/2″ ; Stand: 6 1/4″ diam x 3″. Together, the Bowl and Stand are 14″ tall.
Meet the Artist: Dori Schechtel Zanger
Dori Schechtel Zanger was born in Argentina and moved to Israel in 1983, where she studied at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Jerusalem. One of Israel's preeminent ceramic artists, Dori's sculptures and functional art tell extraordinary stories.
In Dori's own words: "All that surrounds me, exits me and influences me eventually shows up in my work.
I have always been fascinated by the ability of the ceramic work to tell a story. Images upon a three dimension object give me a visual language to communicate speechlessly with the viewer." Dori's work is exhibited in museums and fine galleries throughout the world.
