Coconut Palm Acrylic Slump Bowl

We picked up some beautifully painted coconut bowls in Hawaii - and wanted a way to display them that also made it easy to use them. Introducing the coconut palm acrylic slump bowl :slight_smile:

Made out of 1/8" acrylic, You can cut everything, but I found just scoring the majority of the leaf design looked just as nice and the bowl was sturdier when finished. To slump: set on an overturned metal bowl into an oven set to 300° F, and when the oven reaches temperature pull it out (wearing leather/insulated gloves!) and mold them to your desired shape.

They are a touch tough to pull out of the waste acrylic when you’re done cutting them - so possibly adding some break-up lines could assist. Also 2 of them will nestle nicely on a single piece of acrylic.

Thanks for the file. I believe I need to go to Hawaii and seek the right vessel for this. Frigid February makes me long for a Hawaiian sunset.
