UPDATE at end of this post
This is a Black Potato Art bowl given to my daughter, Tammy, from her sister, Tina, as a Christmas gift!
I had never heard of this Art.
( and, indeed, just recently became familiar with black potatoes)
~ a bit on this potato ~
http://www.foodsubs.com/Potatoes.htmlpurple potato = purple Peruvian potato = blue potato = black potato Notes:
These purple-fleshed potatoes have a medium starch content, so they're good all-purpose potatoes.
(back to the bowl)
This was the most unusual art object I had seen in awhile.... or maybe ever! The color is much more intense than the pictures show. It's a deep purplish-blue. It appears to be very fragile and will only be used to 'look at!'
Here is my daughter, Tammy, showing off her unique gift from her sister!
I tried to find info on this but was not successful.
Does anyone have any info on this art form to share?
UPDATE on the bowl:
Talked to my daughter after posting the above and she gave me this website that was in the package with her bowl!
Also a FB friend found the very same Website and put it on FB! :)
This is fascinating art to see and read about!
