Some pictures of the steps in making this beautiful vintage look hammered reclaimed copper bowl from a piece of 1mm thick sheet copper. This is a little different to my usual unplanned pieces which just evolve as I hammer…
I took measurements, I followed instructions from a tutorial (OK some instructions) and actually worked to a plan. And then deviated from the plan a bit. It was a fun project and that is the most important thing for me. If I don’t enjoy doing it then what’s the point?
Making a Bowl
It always starts with sheet copper cut to size
About half way though
When I feel the bowl has reached the correct depth I made a flat base for it. Using a compass and a Sharpie I found the centre of the bowl and made a circle. This was then hammered flat gently to form the base. Apologies for no pictures of this as I forgot to take photos!
We are on the final stretch now!
It has been a fun project and I am sure I will be making more. I will make some smaller ones to enamel too.
