My record bowls are hand painted with acrylics, heated, and lovingly sculpted into unique organic, flower-like forms. I have sealed up the spindle hole so it is water tight and functional. The entire bowl, as well as the record label on the bottom of the bowl, has been sealed with a glossy finish.
This bowl is great for holding fruit or candy or just as an art object to set on your coffee table. It would make an awesome conversation piece!

"I’m such a fan of Christine Claringbold. She takes old vinyl records and does fantastic, beautiful things with them. Such a savvy colorist, and — good lord! — what a steady hand! I admire anyone who can take cast-off things and make something new with them. But it’s really a feat of ingenuity when you can make something new that’s both lovely and useful."
