Paquime trive was located 150 miles south of the US border at Douglas AZ The tribe stayed in Nuevo Cases Grande from 1200 to 1400 making pottery. This is the influence they had on me on my visit there
Bowl is 12 inches across and is painted with chalk board paint to give it the right colors and the texture of pottery. It is ash wood

Stunning as usual Ron.
Wonderful work and I love the finish.
It looks just like Pottery.


-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Excellent work on this beautiful bowl Ron. I love the paint/natural combo and the painted design is really nice.

It looks like you turned a wood liner to fit inside of a pottery bowl.
I like this very much and will be showing this to my wife. Hope you don’t mind but I am sure I will be doing something like this very soon.

Pete I am not sure that the man in the mirror is ever happy with what he does. I can find too much fault in my pieces. This is not at the Gallery Uptown and the customers will be the judge
Thanks to the rest of you for the comments
