Mandala Record Bowl - Empire Yellow by Eye Pop Art
Mandala Record Bowls are created from recycled 12" vinyl records. The "platters from the past" are upcycled with fresh acrylic paint and an original Eye Pop Art mandala design which is painted freehand with acrylic.
The bowls are hand painted in original psychedelic patterns, heated, and lovingly sculpted into uniquely organic, flower-like forms. The spindle holes have been sealed up so the bowls are water tight and functional.
A semi-gloss polyurethane finish protects the paint and makes the bowls food safe, with the added attraction of the original record label intact (and also sealed with polyurethane) on the bottom of each bowl.
Eye Pop Art bowls are fantastic for holding fruit, candy, candles, trinkets, or anything your heart desires. They are bright, colorful art objects to set on your coffee table. They are eco-friendly and make a great conversation piece! Surprise your guests when you tell them to flip the bowl over and see the very interesting recycled material that it was made from!
Hand wash gently with a damp cloth, air dry. Please do not put in the dishwasher, oven, or microwave!
