Knitted Felted Rainbow Bowls

Creative Friday and Fridays Nature Table

Last week I posted about the process of making these bowls.  Here is the finished product now for sale in my Etsy shop, Bridgit's Bell.

These bowls are very sturdy and would hold up to children's play or be used by adults for treasures or display.

I walk in a nearby cemetery that has amazing trees.  The the bowls are displayed on the large shelf-type mushrooms growing on the sides of a stump.  On the top of the stump is a tangle of vines.  Nature is never wasteful and life grows from death.

The mushroom is Ganoderma applanatum, otherwise known as the Artist’s Conk.

    1. On a bedroom bureau they are an attractive container for pocket contents or jewellry. In the living room they can hold collections of treasures such as nuts, seahells, crystals, etc They can hold a fried flower arrangement or I put a drinking glass inside and use it for fresh flowers.I slso just have three of them (different colors) sitting on a coffee table because I like them!

    1. Thanks for the compliment! I like taking my photos out in nature. On Etsy I keep reading how important photos are so I am experimenting with a light box too. It is hard for the shopper to get a good idea of the item when they cannot pick it up and feel it.
