Description
Blue as the winter sky, this lovely bowl may once have adorned the table of a Roman citizen. Its shape is elegant, simple but timeless in its appeal. As we hold it in our hands today, admiring its contours, we echo the gestures of its ancient owner. We know nothing else about that individual, not his name or his profession, yet we share with him (or her) our pleasure in this bowl's beauty. These feelings unite us in a common mood that transcends the centuries. We feel a bond, intimate and real, that connects us with a vanished life. - (GF.0284)
