Let me tell you about this bowl, in case you missed it on IG/FB.
I had a large bowl order for a customer/friend, she wanted six unfinished stacking bowls. I was working on taking the tenon off the very last bowl when the bowl came flying off the lathe. It chipped a large piece off and created a crack, it also had a long crack on the opposite side. I posted a picture in frustration on IG/FB and said it was going in the trash! I had comment after comment telling me not to toss it, I could salvage it. So it went to the workbench and got moved around for months.
Finally after getting home from the retreat I was inspired and came up with a game plan on how to salvage this bowl. I filled the large chip with epoxy and coffee grounds, in hindsight I used too many coffee grounds for my liking. Then after the epoxy cured I sanded the exterior and then used my (new) carving set and added some texture to the inside of the bowl.
This bowl was purchased by another local artist.
