A gilt-bronze and champleve enamel 'alms' bowl
The Buddhist alms bowl was one of the most revered relics in the ancient Buddhist world. Before representations of the Buddha's physical form became common, his presence was aniconically represented by various objects associated with him, such as an empty throne, the bodhi tree, and the wheel. One such object was the alms bowl, which has come to symbolize Buddha's teachings on nonattachment.
The lotus, delicately rendered with leafy scrolls on the present lot, represents purity in Buddhism. With its large size and fine workmanship it is possible that this bowl was made as an offering to a temple or as a gift to an important abbot, as an alms bowl is one of the few possessions a monk is permitted to own.
Chinese Works of Art and Paintings
September 11 in New York
Ok instagram....I need help. Some of you may have seen the big piece I'm planning involving at least 19 enameled pieces in fine silver. I'm a stickler for perfection and I figured etching all the recesses for champleve would be best. I'm debating whether chemical or electro would be best, tho I'm leaning towards electro. Instructions and walk thru's seem to be nearly non existent. And with so much silver on the line I'd like to do it right. So the picture you're seeing is brass that I attempted to etch using ferric chloride and a diy photo paper resist. I wanted to test how clean I could get the lines....any advise would be great! Then I could gather it all into a helpful tutorial for others!
What I know so far:
-The general setup and how electro etching works
-i believe the electrolyte for fine silver is silver nitrate?
-vinyl makes a great resist? Can anyone confirm that it'll hold up to a long etch session?
-i need my starting metal to be around 14g or thicker?
