Foldforming Friday

I planned to do a couple of hours this afternoon foldforming a few bowls. And the good news I was able to do it.

I started with one old brass serving tray and a few discs of various metals - copper, brass and aluminum.

The above photo shows the small bowls after annealing and with the first folds in place.

The serving tray becomes a rough bowl about 250mm across - still some beating to be done. I left the decorative edge on - used the whole tray.

And the small bowls in the rough - final beating and cleaning yet to be done. Will post again when the bowls are cleaned etc.


  1. am just amazed that you can beat and form metal like this- the surface textures look so wonderful.

  2. D- I am so glad I took the time to learn the technique from Charles Lewton-Brain. One can create some great organic and Japanese like forms. B
