This contemporary bowl makes a bold, graceful statement. It is hand forged out of mild steel by Ruben Irons, Artist Blacksmith and finished with raw beeswax. Unique marks of character speak to both the ancient craft of blacksmithing and each particular piece of metal.
If you would like your Angular Bowl personalized as seen in some of the example photos, select the "Number of Characters" that fits your text and type your desired engraving into the "personalization for engraving" box above. We use 1/4" tall numbers and capital letters. "/", "-", "&", "+", "." and a heart shape are also options. Have your bowl personalized with initials, a date,"6 YRS", GPS coordinates or any combination of text. The text will line one of the edges of the inside of the bowl as seen in photos, unless you connect to specify another desired location.
If you'd like an engraving longer than 70 characters, contact us for a total and we can set up a listing just for you.
This bowl sits approximately 4" tall at its highest point, measuring roughly 10.5" x 9" x 8.5" x 5" along its sides. Each has a similar feel but no two are identical giving your one-of-a-kind bowl its personality. The flattened bottom is about 3.25" in diameter, allowing for a stable base and a level spot for a pillar candle inside (there is a 3" beeswax pillar depicted in one of the photos). Forged out of 3/16" mild steel plate.
Let this bowl speak for itself as a sculptural piece, nest a candle inside or showcase a special object within it. This bowl is solid (weighing over 4 lbs) and will stand strong for generations, making it a unique heirloom piece.
Makes a lovely 6th anniversary gift (iron anniversary), 11th anniversary gift (steel anniversary), wedding gift or housewarming gift.

"Shipped and arrived on time for our 6th anniversary. The beautiful photos only just begin to convey the unique nature of the piece. Clearly, the artist is skilled at hand-forging and finishing the piece. The hammer marks, flatness of the base, subtle variations in the material, the edge deburring, depth of engraving are elements that can't be fully appreciated until it is held in hand." -Jim WIlson
