Matt Overton & Barb Serratore (Joe Seltzer) yew natural edge bowl with quote from Winnie the Pooh - "We didn't know we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun" 7x10cm. Signed

 

Matt studied the four pieces by Ray in his collection and decided to honor Ray by trying to keep his elegant simplicity of form.  Matt finish turned the bowl to slightly thin it and to create a smoother surface on the inside. 

The sap ring, which varied in height from 3/8" to 1/2" was the perfect space to embellish.  Barb wanted to woodburn a quote around the live edge.  In choosing the quote, she considered what she knew of Ray: he was a personable and well liked man who made friends easily and enjoyed collaborative art. And he was English.  So, who better than Winnie the Pooh (A.A. Milne) could have said, "We didn't realise we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun."  And if we are fortunate enough, isn't that a life well described?

 

As for the layout of the quote, Barb chose to burn it in between two small checks that developed in the edge as the piece was turned.  Barb burned a small and shadowed butterfly on the inside of the bowl to symbolize Ray's spirit in flight.  While they were concerned about the checks when they first appeared, the checks figured very heavily on the layout and design in a very positive manner.  The quote and attribution were too short to reach around the entire circumference of the bowl, so Barb worked it in between the checks.  Its location on the outer edge very naturally dictated the placement of the butterfly on the inner bowl.  

 

We are very grateful for the opportunity to have participated. We hope our work honours Ray's memory.
