I call this “Bowly Mobius” because it is a sculpture constructed of bowl parts and it forms a “mobius” strip (a construct where you must go around 2 times in order to return to your starting point).
This is an advanced construct after my “Wavy Ribbon” project presented at the NEOS Picnic in May. Like the Wavy Ribbon, the Bowly Mobius is based on Malcom Tibbetts’ work done with miter saw, lathe and band saw… mine was cut using only a scroll saw, glued together and refined with various sanding tools.
The closeup of the project shows the platform it sits on… on the left is a half bowl with the project title, “Bowly Mobius”, and on the right is a quarter bowl with the statement, “cut using only a scroll saw”. Next is me with the project and the 1st Place ribbon for Open Category_Complex at the SAW Expo last weekend in Springfield, MO. Then other views of the project to show the curves from other angles. The hardest part of the project was assembly!
