The last picture shows the inspiration and design along with the original copper before chasing. The design of the bowl was hand cut and chased using a hammer and handmade tools. The pedestal was hand engraved using a free hand technique. You can see the detail in the copper bowl and the steel pedestal in close up pictures also.
We worked on it for 70 days. Much of that time I was on restricted vision except for 6 hours a day, so they weren't 8 hour days.
