Description: Heart Bowls are each unique wioth random designs and coloring. The bowls are hand cut, filed and hammered into a bowl with a clear acrylic finish that is used on auto mobiles.

Flame painted copper is both an art and a science. The art is the artist negotiation with the copper to create the design the artist has in their mind. The science is understanding the oxidation process and developing a methodology that allows the artist to consistently control the color and technique for "painting" the copper with a torch. Up to 14 colors can be achieved using only a propane/oxygen torch (no chemicals or paint).
