Even though their heyday was a little before my time, as a young child I was always fascinated by the art deco rising sun styles of the 1940's radio grilles. Looking back I can account for meeting many variations as a child, either when visiting friends or on display in antique shop windows. There was just something about the design my young brain liked. Fast forward well over half a century and it felt I just had to emulate the style in a segmented bowl design.

Four species of wood were used. Beech for the sky, Limewood for the sun and sunbeams, Iroko for the ground and segments of Walnut for the rim.
