I have been thinking of doing this very same thing to the bottoms of my cups and some bowls. Drilling holes to make it feel lighter and bubbly. I really like the simplicity and playfulness of this cup.
Maggie Finlayson is a current MFA student at UMN and I would love to have her as a peer. These bowls are gorgeous, the color and texture make me want to hold one, or better yet just own one.
These sculptural paintings are amazing and are currently showing at the Braunstein/Quay Gallery.
