coiled fabric bowls part 2

10 March 2010

Since the first rainbow bowls I made were so popular I decided to make some more. The practice has made me faster and more familiar with the technique. I’ll be selling these at the April Freret Market and in my Etsy shop, and I thought I’d post the individual bowls here too.

The bowls are made by wrapping strips of cotton fabric around rope, which is the coiled and sewn into shape. The bowls are very flexible and sturdy. I use different colors of thread on each side of the bowl which effects the tone of the rainbow–the bowls can be reversed as you prefer! There is some slight fraying as your bowl is handled but this does not in any way compromise the structural integrity of the bowl (one of my favorite phrases from Katrina!)

I determine the pricing by the amount of rope that is coiled into each bowl. Twenty feet of rope can be coiled into many different shapes, so I think this is a pretty accurate way to assess the value of each piece.

    Grils!
    A menstrual cup is clearly a more green alternative.

    I was on a work course about the Environment and our impact on it and what really struck me was how much I contribute to landfill every month. I have never liked tampons or pads, they make me feel irritated and unclean, especially in the summer. Personally, I can tell you I love my MonthlyCup, so I’d always recommend giving it a try. https://www.menstrualcup.com/gb
