Here is my latest bowl: a Christmas commission. A bowl for a good friend to give to her boyfriend. This is the 4th in a series and I feel like I’m finally getting the shape and color down.
This is reclaimed Birch, turned green. The feet are carved with a mini grinder, rasps and sandpaper. The bowl is then dyed with Lockwood’s Aniline Dyes. In this case, it’s a blend of Ruby Red and Golden Orange Dye.
The detailing is done with pyrography and the finish is French Polish with Orange Shellac.
The diameter at the rim is about 9” with a wall thickness just shy of 1/8”.
