Well, I did it again. I was able to complete my 10th (!) Super Bowl on Super Bowl Sunday!

This one stared out with the air chased sample I made last year, which I then cut up and then pierced holes into. These were added onto a wonky, vaguely triangle shaped, bowl that I sink. It was cut up to accommodate these holey nickel pieces.

I created a base out of one of the bits I had cut out of the bowl, then riveted the whole thing together after sanding and patinating it. Now the only thing it needs is a name. What do you think about Kidney Vortex? (hahaha)

Please, if you participated this year, link your blog to this post and I will vreate a participants page later in the week!

All the Holes

Bowl & Pieces ©2018 WTEK

I’ve been working steadily away on this year’s SBC. The big piece of air chased nickel is now 4 smaller pieces. The bowl is pretty much planished. Now comes the nitty gritty. I have to cute holes into all of the recesses of the nickel pieces. Then I have to figure out placement inside the bowl, cut the bowl up accordingly, put it all back together and make sure to add a base of some kind on too. All with one week left to go.

Did I ever tell you that piercing and filing are my least favorite things to do? Yet I can’t seem to design bowls that don’t use those techniques extensively. One day I’ll learn. Or maybe learn to love them, hehe.
