Bowl Making ..... Again


I have been on a bowl making spree.
I made the forms out of egg cartons that I soaked 
and pulverized into pulp.  



The forms were covered with emptied tea bags and paint
then other paper, and sometimes drawings or images were added. 
They have a final coat of paste wax to seal them.



These bowls can't hold soup, 
but I can imagine them holding some of my 
rock or shell or feather collections. 








I also made a couple of small bowls 


To add to my small bowl collection.


And my stack of larger bowls is also growing.


Its been fun making these bowls,
but I have decided to take a bit of a creative
and blogging break to get outside
and enjoy what may be the last bit of our summer.

I will be back in a couple of weeks!

See my previous bowl post here.

  7. I think I could really get into making these. So rustic and wonderfully nature!!! Nice work on all of these and your previous ones. Enjoy your summer break! Hike up a storm!

  8. Absolutely exquisite. Made all the more so because they are made of such humble, recycled materials. I really love these, and with their subtle colouring and minimalist decoration, are very restful on the eye. What gorgeous work.

  14. The bowls are quite lovely; I especially like the one with the trees. I never would have thought of using egg cartons for pulp, but that is an excellent idea!

    1. First I made a bowl using a pulp I made from egg cartons. When it dried I covered it with tea bags that I glued on and then I added a thin layer of paint, or covered parts of the bowl with layers of coloured tissue paper or coloured tea bags (That I glued on). If I wanted to add some drawings or images, I added those before I added the paint, and painted around them.
      I hope this is helpful.
