Rocking bowl is 14 inches in diameter and mounted on wenge and copper. It is laquered and has the translucent yellow outside and japanese black laquer inside. Threw in a photo of it before the laquer work when I was at a local middle school teaching a class on wood art.

Very nice. Again, the ‘legs’ or mount adds a whole new dimension to these pieces. Inspiring…
