unique forged vessel made from uncycled industrial cast offs. 8" in diameter and 1" deep. The main bowl is made from a 3/16" thick heavily pitted steel disk with an as found split on one side. The center element is made from a coil of concrete reenforcing bar "rebar". The two pieces are brought to an extremely high heat (about 1800 degrees) and fused together under a 120 pound hammer in a proccess known as forge welding. The bowl is then given it's shape and wire brushed while it is still red hot. The finish is a paste wax applied to the still hot metal and then buffed. This is a one of a kind peice of functional art. Ideal for collecting those nick nacks that pile up on the dreesser or mantle. Great for you keys or loose change or even as a small fruit bowl. You could even hang it on the wall.
