no previous part Part 1 of thank you sam shakouri series Part 2: now i went and did it . »

i just saw this bowl , by new LJ’er sam shakouri , ‘STRIPED BOWL WITH REVERSED DOTS ‘
http://lumberjocks.com/projects/27141
and was very impressed with it ,
i asked if i could ’ borrow ’ the design ,
and he kindly said yes .
this is my take on it ,
even though i know he did his slightly differently ,
i will leave that to him to post .
this is by way of an appetizer ,
get yourself a drink ,
the main course is yet to come !

THANK YOU SAM ,

WELCOME TO LJ’s .

Back to the basics again, eh David. I think I remember making these in elementary school. JUST KIDDIN’!!! I tried a couple of times to think about how you might have done this and my brain started hurting. NICE WORK!!!!!! You’re an artist.

Very ‘60s… I like it! I see hors d’oeuvres of small pieces of jalapeno-laced havarti skewed with toothpicks…. and martinis all ‘round.

Can’t wait for your blog. It will be another “I got to try this someday” event for me.
