Always on the lookout for interesting, hippie, handmade, design-y pottery, this fit the bill on all counts.
It was only after picking it up we saw the name Katzer.

Above, Elaine Katzer on the kick wheel in 1962, from here, which looks like it's going to be an awesome show. And below, slightly more impressive than our bowl is her giant stoneware work "Sea Chanty" (1976), from the book California Design...
In fact, this may be my new favorite thing .

I am imagining if graffiti kids made 3d versions of their stuff out of clay, like "Sea Chanty"...Stick it on the wall with tile glue. Come back and grout it another night...Yeah I like it...

I was imagining the same thing, which led to me thinking that someone should make inflatable graffiti...(it's on my to do list)
