Twenty or so years ago a friend gave me a bowl made out of a vinyl record. It was a bad music ( The Pink Project) so he found another use for the scratchy vinyl. He placed it over a heater until it became soft and then he formed it into a bowl. To go w/the name of the record he painted it pink. I thought it was just brilliant.
I was walking down Bedford the other day..and what do you know? Same idea...yet it seems so fresh...twenty years later. So if you still have any vinyl around, this a great way to make your own bowls/ vases etc. And of course an instant conversation starter.
