‘Dizzy’ was inspired by the wrapping paper someone had used to give something to one of my girls. I often just tear random pieces for decoration, but with this one I managed to work out a mathematical way of repeating a pattern influenced by the three main colours of the bowl. I’m glad I made it as a mini bowl, though – I’d have gone crazy trying to get it right as a full-sized bowl!
Like my ‘Beer Nuts’ mini bowl, Dizzy is perfect for just that – beer nuts! And people who are nuts about beer, of course. If you do plan to use this for your nuts, then I recommend lining it with a paper napkin/serviette first, just to protect both the bowl and your nuts from each other.
And because I know you’re now singing it, enjoy Tommy Roe performing it live here:
- Lollies, candy etc. are for perspective purposes only – item ships without these. (Basically because they’d be really, really stale by the time you received them!)
- Price includes shipping within Australia. If you’re overseas, a $15 surcharge will apply once you enter your shipping address to help cover the additional shipping costs.
DIZZY MINI BOWL DETAILS:
- Diameter: Between 16.5 and 17.5 cm
- Height: Between 4.5 and 5 cm

This series of papier mache bowls is created from self-supporting papier mache, bar the base which has been strengthened with a piece of recycled corrugated cardboard.
All bowls are made from a combination of recycled office and other paper, and some contain new paper for decorative purposes. The occasional bowl will also incorporate other media such as beads etc. The bowls are created using PVA glue, Bondcrete and acrylic sealer.
Each bowl is unique.
The bowls are decorative only – while they are sealed and can be wiped clean with a damp cloth, they should not be immersed in any liquid, nor should they be placed in the dishwasher, oven or microwave.
While they’ve been sealed, I don’t recommend using them as a storage bowl for fruit where the skin is intended to be eaten e.g. plums, apples, grapes etc. Thicker skin which will be peeled should be okay e.g. oranges, bananas, rockmelon etc.
No bowl is completely round, nor completely flat. While the structure starts off reasonably straight, it slowly takes on its own dents and warps as it grows.
