silk bowl 2

This is the second bowl. This one is made from several layers of silk hankies (squares of unspun made from a single cocoon), and formed over a bowl. I put this one in the oven for a bit, and it heat-bonded the medium quite well. It is gossamer thin, and see-through in most places, yet it stands on it's own, and retains it's shape, even after gentle hand-washing.
