Weighing in at a shade over 11 lbs, Pearl is the lightest and most dainty of all Maiden Collection bowls.  I named her Pearl due to the swirling ‘mother of pearl’ markings, together with the fact that once I had finished carving her – in the round – she looked so absolutely precious, standing there, poised on her tiny circular footprint.  Her name also alludes to the fact that much earlier in the collection I had carved a similar but much larger bowl that I had named  Mother of Pearl for what I considered to be quite obvious reasons: namely the large pearl-like eye staring out from deep within the bowl.

Mother of Pearl

I was really quite proud of Pearl once I had finished carving her. The sculpting process however proved something of a complex matter when balance and stability were taken into account.  I am however delighted to say that she is as balanced, poised, and stable as any bowl this playful has a right to be, and will not tip unless outrageously provoked.
