Cocobolo



NOTE: I have had to edit this blog because it seems a few key words are promoting spam on this blog...so I am taking out a few words like "Tarzan" and "in the mouth" seems to have been a red flag for the spam bots. 

This bowl was made by my friend, Kip Eggert. It is made from Cocobolo wood.

I love how the word sounds.  Try saying it a few times...cocobolo, cocobolo.... (sort of like kukamunga, lol) And, the bowl is as exotic and lovely as it sounds.

Larry took the photographs, while I did the photoshop on it for Kip's blog. It is sitting on my dining room table feeling quite at home until I see him again.

Visit Kip's Blog, linked here and in my fave blog links. He is an amazing artist, and I am lucky to have a few of his bowls. He sells to Troy in NYC and was just filmed for a segment on Martha Stewart. YOU ROCK KIP.

Kip and I have been friends for a while, we met at a local market in Rhinebeck where I sold my art and some collectibles. He brought me over a box full of all kinds of assemblage type items, and the rest is history. He is a collector nut like me, and he cooked me my first (and last, sorry Kip) Shad Roe. Great cook, but don't like that shad roe. Too weird. Give me back my octopus.

Off to the studio to make MORE ornaments. I am getting tired of it, orders that are "production" tend to make art feel like a "job". But I am grateful for the order, the money, and the fabulous gallery that I am designing them for. !!! patti

Love the bowl. It is a beautiful bowl and a beautiful picture. Good luck with the ornaments. I'm doing a few of them myself.
