Copper and Calcite Pedestal Bowl # 467

Piece #467 – Walnut with Orange Calcite inlay & Copper Leaf – 9″ by 5″ – SOLD

 

This bowl has quite the history. It started as a plain walnut bowl with an orange Calcite inlaid rim. As I parted it off of the tenon I accidentally cut through the bottom. “Ouch!” To fix the hole I added the pedestal bottom. I thought I would put a Calcite inlaid sunflower in the bottom. After a failed attempt at this I tossed the bowl on the reject shelf. About 18 months later I picked it up and gave it a new look. A Copper leaf sleeve put into the bottom would cover the failed sunflower. A chemical patina completed the Copper inside.
