bowls for susan

Alec and I collaborated on a gift for his Mom's birthday. We poured a set of rustic bowls together, and as I was finishing up with glazing, Alec took pictures around the house he grew up in.

After hours of silhouetting the objects he photographed, he sent me his jpeg images. I printed them onto decal paper, and applied the objects on the inside of the bowls, the house number (also a high contrast photograph) on the outside. The slide show of the making of the bowls gives a good idea of my low-tech casting set up.
