Lovely bowls! Thanks for sharing with us.

Fabulous creations this month! So hard to choose!

I love the tea pot but also am partial to inros so it was a toss up ;-)

I love Beth's piece because it's eco-friendly. The title is clever too!

Some great work here love all the colors.My first pick is because I see so much work and thought that has gone into this project very colorful.
All others great too.

amazed by the colors and different ideas...awesome.

I see lots of attention to detail and quality this month. Congratulations.

I hope to be a member someday soon!
Love all things polymer:)

I think the talent in these challenges keeps getting better and better. I know they get harder and harder to choose. Everyone did such beautiful work. Thanks

Rainbow colors & black and white... my favorite combinations and the fit perfect in a bowl, inro and teapot!!!

I loved viewing all the entries the three I picked though were my fav. If I could of picked a 4th I would of picked the little salt and pepper shakers...

Great items to choose from again this month.

i love the diversity that each member uses to cover a topic. i am always fascinated by the outcome and every time it is difficult to choose among such great art work!

although the challenge was bowls and vases. The creativity and work is great!

Amazing. I get inspired every month.

Beautiful pieces - the choosing was difficult.

Each entry is unique and so creative. What a great group of artists!!

Very hard to vote, such good work! Marie's fun and frolicking fish vessel won me over completely. I was very impressed with all the ideas presented.

11. I love using lightbulbs, my own way if recycling them. I love the creativity here.
8. Spiral canes are the best. I love making them and seeing others as well. Love the colors.

Janice Vuncannon Sears posted the contest on facebook. I am glad she did. I didn't know this was around. Very taleted artist

This one was tough. There were so many wonderful entries.

Beautiful array of artistic interpretations of vessels. Difficult to decide on favorites this month with so many excellent entries.

All the pieces are amazing, hard to vote. If I got more votes I could keep going.

Everything is amazing. Well done everyone.
So many wonderful entries, but I am always drawn to the colorful ones...
