Jim Cockburn - Decorative

bowls

Club Meeting - 26 April 2012

This month’s meeting saw a very interesting presentation by club member, Jim Cockburn, taking us through his decorative bowls.  Jim showed us how to us thin dried wooden stems inlayed into the wide rim of large bowls.  The stems were inlayed into a recessed bowl rim by using coloured resin. It was an extremely interesting talk which sparked a wide ranging discussion on a variety of subjects from using clear cast resins to what sort of wood to use for the inlays.
