“Performance Edge”: Chilean mesquite bowl with rim of coffee grounds, 6.75"

This is one of three pieces created specifically for an exhibition with a coffee theme, called “Not Fit for Human Consumption,” held at Womankraft in February and March 2004. Those are in fact coffee grounds, bonded with epoxy, decorating the rim and filling the cracks in this "natural-edge" bowl. Forgive me if I went overboard on the number of photographs, but there’s so much to see in this piece . . .
