The 8″ Bowl is a practical gift, because of its size and weight Diameter 180mm x Height 35mm and weight 225gm – making it a perfect git to send overseas or give to someone returning overseas.
It is available in many patterns – in the Indigenous Series there is Brolga, Crocodile and Frog. In the traditional patterns there is Flowering Gum, Satin, Swirl, Waratah and Hand Raised.
Australia is surrounded by ocean and artists have struggled to capture the fluid movement of the ever changing water, sand and light patterns.
Don Sheil has succeeded with spectacular results represented in the Swirl pattern which has evolved to become an enduring favourite in the Don Sheil range.
Many of the designs have been inspired by nature’s textures and patterns, so, as in nature, no two pieces will be exactly alike, and variations characteristic of handcrafting may be apparent.
The Swirl pattern is acid etched and anodically finished. Collectors appreciate this, and although an item will be greatly admired, it is also designed to be used.
The Sheil range continues to maintain this tradition of excellence established over many years, creating versatile, enduring designs, perfect for today’s lifestyle.
Made from a unique alloy, each item has the enduring beauty of silver without the drawbacks. It will not tarnish or impart a metallic taste, nor will it be affected by salad dressing, mustard or wine. It may be put in the freezer or taken straight from the oven to the table.
Each piece in the Sheil Collection carries the Don Sheil trademark which is Don’s signature and hand engraved, which ensures its authenticity and originality. Mark Sheil is now the master craftsman, and is continuing the tradition of excellence, which distinguishes these pieces as collectors items.
