From start to finish there are over 25 different steps involved in this ritual bowl’s creation including the hand applied BLACK IRON finish. I use professional-grade, non-toxic patinas and sealers that are specifically formulated for metal sculptures.
This substantial ritual bowl is made from solid steel - the outer ring is made from 1/2” thick square rod and the bowl is 1/8” thick. I do all the metal preparation which includes cleaning, etching and grinding before I weld the pieces together.
Steel is an organic material and it is subjected to temperatures over 5,000 degrees during the welding process. Heat marks and welds will vary on each piece and ensure that yours is unique.
