Out of Africa - mini bowl series by Jenny Mosher
The idea for the Out of Africa series came to me as a result of some origami papers that I had. I also upped the ante on these bowls - they're based on a bigger bowl than my other mini bowls.
The four bowls are:
Splendour in the Grass
Welcome to the Jungle
Choose an individual bowl, or buy all four. Just bear in mind that if someone buys an individual bowl, then the collection of four will be reduced to a collection of three, and so on, as these are each unique items.
Out of Africa mini bowls details:
Average diameter: Between 18 and 19 cm
Average height: Between 6 cm and 6.5 cm
Average weight: Between 36 gms and 40 gms
Price includes shipping within Australia.
This series of papier mache bowls is created from self-supporting papier mache, bar the base which has been strengthened with a piece of recycled corrugated cardboard.
All bowls are made from a combination of recycled office and other paper, and some contain new paper for decorative purposes. The occasional bowl will also incorporate other media such as beads etc. The bowls are created using PVA glue and/or Bondcrete and are sealed with at least three coats of Cabot's Benchtop Clear food safe varnish.
Each bowl is unique.
The bowls are decorative only - while they are sealed and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth, they should not be immersed in any liquid, nor should they be placed in the dishwasher, oven or microwave.
While they've been sealed, I don't recommend using them as a storage bowl for fruit where the skin is intended to be eaten e.g. plums, apples, grapes etc. Thicker skin which will be peeled should be okay e.g. oranges, bananas, rockmelon etc.
No bowl is completely round, nor completely flat. While the structure starts off reasonably straight, it slowly takes on its own dents and warps as it grows.
