Work in Progress: “Super Bowl Challenge”

by shelbyvision on January 10, 2010

Here’s a fun little event I found out about on Facebook. I thought some of you here might like to join in. The idea is to make a bowl and finish it on Super Bowl Sunday, and then upload a picture of it to the Flickr site. Here’s a link with all the information: http://hammermarks.wordpress.com/2010/01…enge-2010/. I plan to watch the game, especially it the Colts are in it, but that won’t be till evening.
I got the sudden inspiration to make a full-moon face, and instead of putting the face on the convex side, putting it on the concave side, so it serves as a bowl and a sculpture at the same time. This was a bit of a challenge, since the curve goes the wrong way, but once I got into it, it all went so well I didn’t want to stop. So, it’s about 90% done, and I’ll set it aside and finish it up at the appropriate time. The bowl is 8″ in diameter and 2″ deep.

I’m continuously amazed by what you do without pitch or filler.

Beautiful work.

You’re welcome! It will look a lot like the picture above, only more finished. 🙂
