    I've been playing with this idea for a while and previously made a bowl using a similar technique, but this is the next stage on...

    The final thing is about 13.5 cms in diameter and still trying to perfect my process so that I can produce them easily. Do you think this idea would sell - do you think I should try different shapes?

    It's a cool design! It would be awesome if the text were customizable, but I'm not sure how hard that would be to do?

    The idea is that I want to provide that as a service, so anyone can say 'I want the lyrics to...' or a poem, prayer etc. and it takes about 30 minutes to re-make the design. This doesn't always work easily, but that's my problem not theirs. Perhaps with variations.. BowlRim.png

    What would be the cost of a bowl like this?

    Do you mean cost to print, or for sale. I've still not worked out a price for sale, would be interested in what others think.

    Just wondered how much it would be to print such a large item?

    The large one (top) is just under £66, the bowl is around £40.
