Spring 2016

This decorative bowl explores and portrays how moldable natural rosin is through its undulating form. The rosin was mixed with dyed encasutic wax to achieve the vibrant red color. The bowl is slightly translucent as a result of mixing in only a small amount of encasutic wax. Due to the molding process, the surface is matte while the top ring is glossy. While the rosin was curing, the mold was tipped to create a slopped plane on the top ring of the bowl.

This bowl is part of a collection of biodegradable objects as a reaction to "fast" furniture, or furniture that is made quickly and cheaply and often loaded with detrimental chemicals.
