A lovely lady from the States (thats USA) wanted to know how I did this type of bowl. Rather that just tell her how to do, it was easier to make one, taking photos as I went and forwarded them to her. Hopefully I will see her results shortly. The second bowl came about when I accidently deleted the photos off the camra before downloading.

NOW TO THE ITTY GRITTY. I AM CHEESED OFF WITH TRYING TO DOWNLOAD PROJECTS ON HERE. 45 MINUTES WASTED LAST NIGHT GETTING ‘WEBSITE CANNOT SHOW THIS PAGE’ EACH PHOTO I TRIED TO UPLOAD. AFTER HITTING REFRESH I WAS SUCCESSFUL, ONLY TO GO THROUGH IT ALL AGAIN FOR THE NEXT PHOTO.
EVENTUALLY DOWLOADED 4 PHOTOS, WROTE THE STORY HIT POST THIS PROJECT ONLY TO GET THE MESSAGE SHOWN IN PIC 5.
THIS MORNING I HAVE HAD THREE TRIES AT POSTING, HOPEFULLY THIS WILL GO OR ELSE IT IS ‘GOODBYE TO YOU FROM ME’ HAVE ENJOYED BEING HERE BUT ….........

Sorry about the site issues, I know how that can be, but the bowls came out great.

Great bowls. I’m interested in astronomy and they look like nebulas.
