My husband is an artist. It wasn’t how he or I ever thought to describe him, but what started as a weekend adventure has turned into a passion.

He works in metal, making interesting pieces; some functional others simply beautiful. They fill our house and occasionally the home or office of a family member or friend.

Because he is fairly prolific, I routinely have a new favorite piece.   Right now, this bowl tops my list.

We have a number of these odd shaped bowls;  some rusted, some polished.  This is the only one he has made so far with this really cool burnt effect.  I really like the way the metal has a blue tone in the burnt parts.
