This gorgeous bowl encapsulates Hawkes’ incredible ability to use blow-out blanks and fit a pattern perfectly to the challenging shape. The bowl is signed clearly on the edge (where Hawkes always signed this blank).
The bowl has eight extremely deep protruding blown-out panels. Almost like eight giant tusks on the underside of the bowl. Each one of these is cut with either a chain of hobstars or a row of notched prism topped with a fan. The amount of work it must have been to cut on this type of blank is astounding. Each of the blownout portions extends almost ½” and creates a pocket on the interior of the bowl. The blank is quite thick and very heavy.
The wonderful piece is nearly perfect with only a few fleabites to the cutting. It measures just under 10” wide and 3” tall. I’m offering the bowl at much less than these go for typically.
