Large Pitch Bowl

I needed a heavy bowl to hold pitch for repousse work.  I wanted one wider and heavier than what was commercially available so I built this one.  The diameter is 10" and is 1 1/2" deep.  The body is solid, being torch cut from 1" plate and painstakingly welded together.  Then the welded, half cannon ball was ground down to a half sphere.  It weighs in around 55lbs and is awesome.  The pitch I harvested from the forest and refined in the shop.
