This bowl is actually carved from a block of normal bricks joined with mortar. Even though it looks lathe-turned, I can’t imagine that a slab of conventional brick masonry would hold together during turning, even if you could find a lathe that was able to turn it. Maybe it could be done at extremely low speed? Suffice to say I’m very curious about their process, and other examples on this page lead me to suspect it involves a CNC mill and/or a shop full of very dedicated craftspeople. [via Dude Craft]
