Special order for Grasshopper 510

I finished the ten special-ordered Mandala Record Bowls for Grasshopper 510 in Chicago ("eco-conscious without a hint of hippie," according to the October issue of Lucky). I'll be shipping them tomorrow. I sent pictures to Jean, the owner, and she loves them, so I am very happy.

She asked for some designs along the lines of the pieces I am doing for Viva Terra, only in a variety of fall colors. Each piece is a solid color with a simplified ivory-colored design, or the same pattern with the colors in reverse.

I think this black one with the orange in it makes a great image for October:





Next time you're in Chicago, be sure to check out Grasshopper 510, located at 1944 N. Damen Ave., just south of Armitage Ave.

I love all the colors. How do you melt and shape them without hurting the color?

Hi there -
I use acrylic paints which are quite flexible and take the shape of whatever you do to the canvas.
Thanks for your comment!
