Kaitlyn decided it would be a great idea to carve our own bread-rising bowls so she can add them to her bisque firing tomorrow night. Sweet! Thanks Kaitlyn! It was really fun to extend our bread baking endeavors to a related creative activity. Can’t wait to make the next batch of bread with these to see how/if the patterns transfer to the top of ┬áthe loaves.

I’ve been wanting to try this technique for a while, especially to make some of my own leaves out of brass and copper. I knew I wanted to patina them. As I was preparing a bunch of other components to patina, I tried folding some 24 gauge metal, hammering it, and then opening it. Of course I wanted instant gratification, so I stopped with one fold, cleaned up the edges and then textured the open surfaces with hammers and a stamp.

Next time I will take the time to anneal the metal after the first fold, and try a few more folds.
