Cherry Blossom and Leaf Bowls

Cherry Blossom and Leaf Bowls

This is a great way to make a unique slab bowl using a drape mold (don’t have a drape mold then check out our two classes that teach you how to make one). I love Cherry Blossoms for Spring and Leaves for Autumn. Once you know how to make these bowls you can take the skills you learned here and go further with this idea by making snowflake bowls for Winter, egg bowls for Easter, there are endless options for your creativity! This project is suited for all ages and skill levels!
