As you can guess by the title, I was in the studio over the holiday weekend pounding away at some metal. Inspired by the video I shared last week and my renewed interest in bowl making, I decided to start work on some bowls… and this time I decided to raise!
I had been thinking about ways to create more dynamism in the bowl edges, so I thought about an offset base. You can’t get this just by sinking, so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to start raising again. It came out brilliantly and I can’t wait to start working on the other sections that I’ll be adding (probably some fold formed nickel.) And this time I don’t have to worry about a base because it stands on its own (oooh, ahhh!)
