I was in a show at our local gallery called ‘trash2art’ which challenged artists to make something out of the scraps you would toss in the trash.
I got some copper scraps, fashioned a bowl shape and punched holes around the edges, enameled the inside with a ‘sgrifitto’ style where a base layer of enamel (sea foam green) is fired, then a transparent purple is sifted on, then scribed with a file, then fired.
Thin copper wire is used to stitch the piece back together.
