I did it! I finished the bowl that became a teapot that finished as a bowl/vessel! I am super happy with the results. It was an intricate piece where I had to shape each eel-like shape to fit the bowl and weave together with the other pieces. And on top of that, I needed to make sure that I would be able to rivet each piece where it needed to attach without overlapping. This required some patience and finagling, but it worked out in the end.
I love all of the different textures in this pieces also. You saw how hard I worked to achieve just the right texture for the brass pieces, and I didn’t planish the copper so that I could have the funky textures that were hammered into the metal. This meant A LOT of bouging to make sure the bowl wasn’t lumpy.
Remember the title of the last post about this bowl? Well, that was secretly the name of the piece: Maelstrom.
