Petal Bowl II

Petal Bowl II Petal Bowl II
Why is this piece called Petal Bowl II when there is no Petal Bowl I? Well, it's actually named after White Alabaster Bowl which was called a Petal Bowl by a gallery it was displayed at once. The gallery owner would put red rose petals in it, and the effect was quite striking.

This stone is similar in some ways, but it's actually anhydrite instead of alabaster. It's more of a blue-white as opposed to the yellow-white of the alabaster. It's also a bit harder than alabaster, making carving it a different experience.

Dimensions: Alas this is another piece that found a new home before I remembered to write down the dimensions. From memory only, it's about 14 inches wide, 10 inches deep, and 5 inches tall.
