Who / What ??

Time for another Quiz-of-the-Month….

WHO is the Artist?  WHAT is the Item?

Who is the Artist:  Two lovely small bowls — Porcelain with wonderful, lively ‘geometric’ glaze treatment.  Silky smooth; wonderful to handle, and hold in the hands, and eat something yummy.  Can you guess — WHO is the Artist??  Hint:  A Wisconsin Artist.

What is the Item: Something creamy, and  summery, and desserty.  Can you guess — WHAT is the Item??  Hint:  Something Scandinavian.


First, the Artist:  The Artist is Wisconsin Artist – JoAnne Kirkland.  At least, I’ve found her work primarily in Wisconsin galleries.  I certainly enjoy her geometric, almost mystical glaze treatments on her simple, but confident forms.  Here is a link to a Gallery in Wisconsin that carries her work:


Next, the Item:  Yes, Minnesota is known for a strong Scandinavian population — This dessert is known as Swedish Cream.  It’s made with heavy cream, sugar, and a bit of sour cream (I used creme fraiche).  And I think it looks perfect in these bowls!!

I first had this creamy, refreshing dessert at a wonderful restaurant on the shores of Lake Superior.  It was served with a generous topping of fresh raspberries, lots of whipped cream, and a generous drizzle of pure Maple Syrup.  Northern dessert goodness!

And again, hope you enjoyed the latest Quiz of the Month!!
