Notes Jim Partridge's "Blood Vessel Series" explores the emerging bowl form with a medieval sensibility. The scorching technique he employs on the surface gives the bowl an ancient appearance. Unmistakably wooden, the pieces have a weight and mass very uncharacteristc of most contemporary turned vessels.
