The bowl was the first one I ever saw and I fell in love with it.  Has anyone ever made anything like these?  Do you guys know of any sites that have tutorials for  things like these?

thanks! Cheesy

I love the bowl and platter.  I saw the place mats and had an idea for you.  I make frames similar to this and you could make the placemats with some slight changes.  I would use thin plywood and back it with felt so it wont scratch any surfaces.  I use tile adhesive to glue the rocks on and then cover with clear acrylic spray.  Here is a phot




Good luck!

This would be a bit of a challenge, but I bet you could make the bowl using clear resin. You'd need two nesting bowls to squish the pebbles and resin in between. And they'd have to be a material that didn't stick to resin...

But with some finagling I bet it could be done.

i don't know if you are still looking for these placemats since you posted in august but our walmart is carrying something very similar for about $6. As much as i hate walmart they are handy for some random great stuff.
