New Bowls

Was looking at my larger oval serving bowls the other day and thought it'd be nice to have a smaller, deeper serving bowl. Cut out an oval and used my hump form to set up the bottom piece and while it was setting up, cut out 2 sides and bent them into curved U shapes to stretch around each side, and finally a small 1/2" flange circle for the foot.

Voila, bowls with 8 separate construction steps! (Please, no sniggering from the throwing crowd...)

For phase-2 bowls I'll accentuate the two side seams for a bit more pizzazz.

I could also make some three sides bowls in this style to go with the three sided plates. Maybe they don't have to have the flange foot?!? Possibilities are probably, as always, endless.


  1. Love the shape and size of these! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Oh, I have a secret writer side that this blog feeds... Thanks for reading.
