    Another piece in the HMG series “Hot Wired”

    This hollow form is 130mm tall x 230mm diameter wall thickness is around 3mm.

    The hollow form has been turned. Sanded inside and out to 5600 grit, the hot melt glue (HMG) applied, it’s then sprayed black.

    Coloured using copper gilt cream to give the effect of copper wire wrapped around the hollow form. The top is textured and coloured in the same way.

    Hope you like it

    Another stunning bowl using hot melt glue. You really should do a couple of videos showing us meer mortals how this is done. Well I know the theory behind it but just have not got the guts to try it on a finished bowl. So a video may change my mind.
