Patron Gifts: Bowls from Jiam Sangsajja Bronze Factory2017-12-17T22:33:54+00:00

Hi Patron!

Welcome to the secret page we created just for top-tier supporters of the show. This page is meant to supplement the bowl that you just got in the mail, and give you a better idea of just what went into making it.

Just below you’ll see some photos that Greg took on a recent bike ride that went past the workshop, as well as a video that will give you an idea what a hot, painstaking (and noisy) process it is.

We hope you like the bowls, and again, thanks so much for your support – we’re already thinking of gift ideas for your second round!

A Few Photos

Obviously it takes hours and hours to produce one of these things, so we weren’t able to get the full production process, but these furnaces were hot, the billows were working, and the hammering was hard to ignore. Click to make bigger.

A Wee Video

This video was just shot on an iPhone, so it isn’t a pro-level production or anything, but it should give you a good idea as to what it’s like at the factory. Hard to tell in this video, but I was dripping with sweat. I don’t know how these guys aren’t absolutely drenched.
