Compote heart in process




Thus far...

The picture shows the parent materials up top.  And both front and back (inset) so far.   I flatten a piece of the very thin, crinkly base then soldered it to a piece of side trim (also flattened), then cut out the heart shape.

Both of them are very thin so I soldered a piece of the hammered bowl to the back to give it some stability.

It has potential to become a fun, bohemian piece but pretty ho-hum so far (bo-ho-hum?). My only ideas of added wire and rivets are pretty boring too.

This is from yesterday.  I hope to get to the studio yet tonight and have a wild and crazy idea take hold.
