Once upon a time, I worked for a dear friend, Steve, in his delightful art gallery, A Gathering of Spirits, in Skagway, Alaska. Steve is an unbelievably talented artist...his talents range from drawing, carving (woods, bones, & fossilized ivories), rock hounding (he's got mad skills!), and turning small bowls out of all of the above! I just LOVE the miniature bowls...we're talking bowls less than 4 inches tall, down to 1 inch!! Some of my favorites he does are made out of Skagway Birch that he found around the valley. This one is only 1 1/2 inches tall (try to imagine the size of half of your pinky!!
