The bowl is made from poplar and measures 8 1/2" in dia. x 2 3/4" deep. I wanted the rim divided into 5th, so the border design could be repeated.
A Hordaland design can be found in: "Rosemaling, Styles, Study and Design"
This ale bowl was designed for the Hallingdal project in "Rosemaling Styles, Study and Design". The design started out as geometric, but turned into having assymmetrical features as I painted. Notice how the design goes around the central flower instead of radiating out straight from the root flower. Some of the old bowls were designed in this manner.
This “Bostcast” was used in the old days to hold a comb and brush. I heard they were coated with tar to keep the lice out of ones hair. I designed it to fit a large size tissue box. There is a towel bar underneath the bottom. It measures 11” x 15 ½” x 6 ¼” and is constructed out of alder.
This particular catchall is my design and I have painted a number of them in different styles. It’s a fun piece to paint and very showy. It measures 10 5/8” x 18” x 5 1/8”. The back is made from ½” alder and the bowl is turned out of poplar.
This corner cabinet fits nicely into a small corner. It measures 16 ½” x 34 ½” x 8 ½” and is made from ½” alder. The door panel can be removed for easy access.
This covered bowl including the lid measures 7 ½” in diameter x 5” high. It is turned out of poplar.
This cream carafe is an interesting container and a fun one to paint and display. I have painted a number of designs for this piece. The cream carafe measures 5 ¼” in diameter x 7 ½” tall and is turned out of poplar.
