14,328 - The All-the-Good-Cookies-of-My-Childhood Bowl ($60.05)

Width: 8.75" Length: 11.75"

Materials/Techniques: The bowl is drawn from life as I still have that magical cookie bowl. The "photo" is machine appliquéd, embroidered and quilted and the batter which is filled with chocolate morsels awaits baking (or perhaps tasting - in the days when we didn't know about not eating uncooked eggs). The photo edges are cut with a wavy blade to resemble the deckle edges of photos from the 40's and 50's.

Artist Statement: This is part of a series of photos from my childhood. This memory is filled with delicious aromas and yummy tastes and the early learning of the effort involved in creating my favorite tollhouse cookies.

Dedication: To my mother who, despite working a full time job, found time to make cookies and well-loved memories with me.
