“Shark Whisperer bowl” by Robert Kokenyesi, Godfrey, IL

 

This Shark Whisperer bowl has over two dozen ceramic shark teeth with glass blood on them; the collection of the shark teeth is bound together by wax to form a somewhat perforated bowl.  The bowl won honorable mention in the show.  The next post will be about the construction of Shark Whisperer pieces.
