A continuation of the Rosemaling Design & Techniques series.  This time the style is Rogaland and the piece is a beautifully hand carved ram ale bowl that goes with the ale bowl birds featured earlier.

The first series of videos features four different Rosemaling styles, Hallingdal, Os, Telemark and Vest Agder, each done on a different hand carved ale bowl.   This new session focuses on Rogaland.

This precious gift came to me for Christmas. What a joy! He is decorated with a Rogaland bonnet lily.   The bowl is small, designed to go with the other four ale bowl birds.  It is also a precious heirloom, a beautiful, hand carved replica of an actual antique bowl.  The Ram measures 6" long x 3" wide x 2 1/2 " high.  A  perfect gift or legacy pieces for the home. Please enjoy.

Bundle includes FREE US Shipping.  

Traditionally the table was set for a special meal. In the center of the table would be a very large wooden bowl filled with ale. The ale bowl was a prominent object in many rural Norwegian homes and farmhouses..  Some were large enough to hold several liters of ale. These larger ale bowls frequently held smaller ale bowls which would float in the beer and could be used to dip the beer from the larger vessel.   Using the bird shape, especially a goose one, for a container or scoops is an ale tradition.  Please enjoy!
