Fish Bowl Terrain

These wooden terrains were designed to create an environment and home for a glass vessel. The angled cut-outs afford the vessel to sit at different angles and the rocks strengthen the relationship between the vessel and the wood. I wanted to explore how I could push the boundaries of typical spherical fish bowls and create a beautiful artifact for the owner and for the fish. To fabricate this concept, I used walnut, acrylic laser-cut templates, and a bandsaw.
