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.
