Kingfisher Designs: "Walk in the Woods" Footed Bowl
From Kingfisher Designs:
Trees and leaves are always a huge inspiration, especially for someone who grew up in the deserts of the South West. For centuries they have symbolized life, strength, spirituality and so much more. Walk in the Woods is the distilled essence of our "leaves and trees" designs.

The design of the bowl was hand cut and chased using a hammer and handmade tools. The pedestal was hand engraved using a free hand technique.
We worked on it for 70 days. Much of that time I was on restricted vision except for 6 hours a day, so they weren't 8 hour days.

This husband-and-wife team is known for using raising, hammering, chasing and repoussé techniques to create the textured surfaces that make up each piece.
