scoopbowl service

  • Gwendolyn Yoppolo, scoopbowl service, 2010, porcelain with matte crystalline glazes and high temperature wire, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Rebecca Anne Sive, 2021.74A-K

Serving vessels often take center stage in a social gathering. Gwendolyn yoppolo’s scoopbowl service encourages mindful interaction: as people share from this bowl, they also share space and each other’s attention. Yoppolo developed an opalescent glaze that varies under different lights, creating ever-changing perceptions of the artwork and perhaps encouraging the same of each other.
