In the Connecticut workshop of Shaari Horowitz, traditional craft is reinterpreted and transformed into a contemporary art form. Intricate hand-painted patterns derived from old-world color palettes surround the gilded and glazed surfaces of our hand-hewn & turned wood bowls. Each piece carries an original design based on classical sources with roots in medieval manuscripts, ancient textiles and the frescoes of Pompeii. These bowls serve as both functional and decorative works of art.
This is Shaari’s first year participating in American Craftsmen Show. Shaari Horowitz is from Sharon, Connecticut. She is a member of the Early American Folk Arts & Trades Facebook group.
