That one looks real good.

When are you going to do a ‘bankers pay back taxpayers bowl’? or maybe even a ‘bankers go to jail bowl’?

Who says money does’nt come from trees… You just have to make a bowl out of them first.

Love the spiral bowl and the humor behind it.

That is great! I bet it would also give off a unique light effect turned upside down with a light-bulb under it.

This is very similar to my wallet. Especially when I’m at the gas station/s. I put money in my wallet, and it just disappears

Excellent work and good humour.

The project post shot reminds me of a 60’s tv series, Time Tunnel.
