Compote heart in process
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.
