"WindyCityBowl"

 

The number two bowl in our MegaBowl series. Created in 2011 and unveiled at the SOFA Chicago Art Fair in November 2011. We kept a diary of the work in progress and we can tell you that it took us more than three months to create this object.

As we did explain in this catalog with the MegaBowl 01 we have been looking for the limits of what is possible in the making of silver vessels. WindyCityBowl is one of them. We named it after the windy city Chicago, after we visited this great place in the winter of 2010. Looking at the elements fighting the high rise buildings, gave us the inspiration to build a vessel that would bend in the wind, withstanding its force and showing the erosion that is caused by these elements, leaving very tactile traces on the surface of this object.

The WindyCityBowl measures 27 x 15 x 16 inches and weighs over 460 ounces of fine silver...
