Been playing again.
As the title I had a smashing time doing this one.
As of yet this bowl has not got a name. This was just experimenting with the rim. I kept the main bowl and underside simple as I wanted the rim to speak for this one.
Wood is unknown but I believe it is maple if you know different then please let me know(I don’t get maple usually).

It measures 13 1/2” X 2 1/2” and the decoration was done using acrylic paints

Very cool design… how did you apply the paint? Brush or air? I’ve been very tempted to try some similar projects using a small airbrush.

Cheers,

Hi Brad I applied it with an airbrush first attempt at using one.

I never even looked at the link as it sounded like spam so ignored it.

Nice decoration on the rim, had that 3d look, so I thought it was carved recesses.

Pretty good job for the first time using one!

I have a couple Paasche airbrushes (along with a cheap one from HF) that I’ll have to break out to give it a try on a bowl or two. You have provided some inspiration :)

Cheers,
Brad

Heh, I thought you may have cast broken shards of glass into the rim. Looks cool.

Great bowl. And who says it needs a name? Plenty of Artists go with names like “Untitled: Blue”. Personally I like the name you gave the project: “Smashing Time” looks like you smashed some glass for the rim, and also has that Swinging ‘60s British Mod feel going on. Thanks for posting.
