Hope says: My mission is to create things that are beautiful, functional and fun while doing my fair share to save the planet!
I developed my own hardening solution. It worked great and I had several offers to buy the bowl. In 2005 Vessel Vixen was born.
My process is that I soak the material in my hardening solution until it becomes pliable, then I hand shape it before it hardens. After lots of sanding, each piece is coated with a soy based lacquer for a glass like appearance.
I've combined my love of creating with my passion for recycling.
