“I started with the bottom of the bowl. As I turned the foot, two circles appeared, reminding me of the winter prairie sun with it’s “sun dogs” riding on either side. These “sun dogs”, actually knots in the wood, appeared again on the inside of the bowl, slightly over from their original position. By the time they had emerged on the top of the bowl, they had shifted considerably — hence the name. Excited by the fusion of Celtic and Tlingit formline art, I wrapped the pattern around the knots, making them the centre of the eye shapes. The domed rosette on the bottom of the bowl was created to represent the shimmering patterns of the winter sun.”
