A Lotus Bowl

It looks like autumn arrived already and very suddenly. Rain is streaming down all day long and it's quite dark, cool and damp outside. It's great weather to curl up in bed and read a good book, but it also makes my arms ache a lot.

Now to the news from this week's class. I was inspired by a dried fruit pod I bought lately.

I saw this at a flower shop and found it's structure very intriguing and asked what this is. It's a lotus fruit I was told.

As I like to cover the surface of my creations with textures and indentations, I tried to make a pattern similar to the lotus. I used a new mould for a low bowl. It's the largest available, so it's a lot bigger than it's inspiring example.
