Raised Copper Bowl

My friend Melanie commissioned me to do a large copper bowl after seeing the lampshades I made earlier.  With no further instructions than "I want a giant copper bowl," I was able to work without restrictions or a real plan, something that is nice when you are exploring formally.  I ordered a 18" disk of 18 gauge copper off Metalliferous and got started.

Here are a series of process shots of making the knife, trying to leave out some of the stages similar to the spoon and fork.
