My record bowls are hand painted in original psychedelic patterns, heated, and lovingly sculpted into uniquely organic, flower-like forms. I seal up the spindle holes so the bowls are water tight and functional.
I use a semi-gloss polyurethane finish to protect the paint and make the bowls food safe. I leave the original record labels intact (and also sealed with polyurethane) on the bottom of each bowl - which record will YOU get?
Eye Pop Art bowls are fantastic for holding fruit, candy, candles, trinkets, or anything your heart desires. They are bright, colorful art objects to set on your coffee table. They are eco-friendly and make a great conversation piece! Surprise your guests when you tell them to flip the bowl over and see the very interesting recycled material that it was made from!
Most of us have fond memories of the days when all we listened to was records - let the music live forever with a Mandala Record Bowl.
(Hand wash gently with a damp cloth, air dry. Please do not put in the dishwasher, oven, or microwave!)
