First, let’s check out the other two Super Bowls that were made in this year’s challenge.
First this libation cup by Lew Shieber. I love that he says about the project this piece is a part of “from a culture that doesn’t exist in our history, but might have in an alternate time.” That is totally how I think of my work!
Next is a video of Laurie Jane Kern’s wonderful patinated thick, thick, thick copper bowl. I love the music, hehe.
Here’s an image of the finished bowl
Now onto my entry!
This year I decided to try and do a simpler bowl. Not the biggest thing I’ve ever done (like last year) not the one with the most parts or the most rivets. Simple and easy with a few subtle bits to break up the larger whole.
Well that kind of worked. The bowl was the size that I wanted, but it morphed away from my original simpler design to become what it was meant to be. This one it probably the least bowl-y of all my bowls, but it does still have that concave resting place in the middle of it.
The original design was somewhat yin-yangish, but I ended up rotating the placement of the two larger pieces making the whole design more dynamic. The u-shapes help reign it in a bit drawing the eye back into the bowl and the base (as always) was a bit of a struggle to figure out but ended up complementing the bowl.
Now if I can just figure out a name…

Actually it is NOT enameled. That is a hot heat patina! Thanks for adding my video to your post

Thanks for the shout-out, Wendy. Much appreciated! Your piece looks lovely, as usual. Very orbital. And I have to give props to anyone who works nickle silver. That stuff is wicked stiff!
Ooo, orbital. That helps me with the name! And yes, nickel can really be a pain sometimes, but I love the challenge.
Laurie, I’m embarrassed I got that wrong! I saw the torch “kiln” and it ended up so colorful and shiny that I assumed it was enameled! Even more amazing!
