I thought it just a dirty, black bowl and passed it by. Later in the morning, I took a couple of photographs of it then turned it over. Bauer, it said. I knew that Bauer was one of the best of the California potters, and I even own two of their largest bowls. As I left the store, I pointed out to one of our volunteers that the bowl had water spots and needed washing.
This morning, after the gym and breakfast, I tried to look up this bowl on the internet. In an hour of research, I found only one similar bowl, but it had no price. Other black pieces run from seventy five dollars to a hundred something. I think I will run down to the store this morning to make sure it got washed and priced fairly and get it up off floor level. That might be nice.
