Shallow Bowl by Judy Ritger
This is an Embellishment exhibit piece. Available to pick up or have shipped after January 5, 2024.
Artist Statement: This is a typical Norwegian style bowl with an outer rim on which I have lettered " Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace, and the God of love and peace shall be with you (2 Corinthians 13:11). The inside design is painted in Gudbrandsdal style, my favorite regional rosemaling style. I used acrylics for the bowl. I have been rosemaling for about 45 years and have taken and taught many classes at Vesterheim. I went on three folk art study tours with Vesterheim, studying rosemaling and carving. I am now 85 years old and still busy with my art. I received a Vesterheim Gold Medal in Rosemaling in 1989. I received another Vesterheim Gold Medal in Woodworking in 1995.
Dimensions: dia 12” x d 4”
