Mini peace bowl; or a pendant; or a keyring piece

©2019 Barry Smith -  Shallow bowl forms on the rust table
I managed to form all the peace pieces into shallow bowls. Then it was over to the grinding-polishing bench to take the rough edges off; and bring out the beauty of the silver-plate by polishing with a fine steel wire wheel.

I just love the afternoon sun and the play of light and shadows on the pieces on the rust table.

The pieces are now ready for International Peace Day.

  1. Such beautiful photographs (((B))) shining with Flower Power for Peace!
    what was that song that had that line, 'make a Peace sign when they don't like your hair' ? was thinking Country Joe and the Fish but it's not him and it's not Peace Train by Cat Stevens or Give Peace a Chance by John & Yoko...
