I can think of several ways to make this bowl, and none of them would be easy, with all the lines and colorsso crisp and beautiful. Great work of art, would you be willing to tell us how you made this bowl? Thank you for sharing.

As to how it was done:I started with a plain hollow form bowl with about 3/16 wall. After it was sanded to about 220 grit, I used a beading tool which I made (too cheap to buy one) to make beads around the bowl. The beads are about 1/8 wide. I just used a piece of tool steel and a chain saw file to make the tool. Next, I drew lines longitudinally using the indexing on the lathe and a flat tool rest adaptor. I was able to draw about 96 lines this way. Now I had a bowl that had been divided into small segments or pixels. I then worked out a pattern that I wanted to use. Not all the longitudinal lines got used because they didn’t all fit the pattern or they simply got too close together. I then used a soldering iron and another custom made tip to burn small lines on each bead along the longitudinal lines. I then had about 7200 pixels ready to color.Working out a pattern was the hardest part. The next hardest part was finally putting the first color on the bowl …. once you start, you are pretty much committed. It takes a while.
