Today was " Teach Diane how to sink a bowl" day.
We normally get together about once a month to do some chasing & repousse and today was a side of that. Diane wanted a small ring bowl that she could put a leaf design on. Since she did not have a bowl per say, we decided last month that this month I would teach her how to make a shallow bowl which she could then do the design on.
I was going to work on my tool canisters while she was banging away on the metal but I was not in the mood and I ended up making a small tray which I will do a design on.
Over lunch, we both talked about our ideas for the Year of Repousse (yes Diane will join me in the project) and we agreed that these vessels and the finished items would qualify as our first pieces.
Here are pictures of the process. Diane was able to get her bowl planished and sunk into the pitch so she can start lining next week. I did not have the correct planishing stake, so I will do mine next week.
