Life has finally let me get some time in the forge. Finished up the first of the Columbine bowls. I was fortunate to spend some time with Robb Gunter and he was kind enough to provide some feedback on techniques and tooling for the chasing. Wasn't much left to do- just some cleaning up, the application of an acid based patina, and then a paste wax finish. The colors are just the light reflecting some of the magic in the metal.#creede #creedecolorado #blacksmith #forging #bowlingforcolumbine
