Which do you like better? 

The bowl with a polished copper edge, or the version with a darkened edge? 

enamelware copper bowl with abstract landscape drawing showing 2 versions of edge treatment, black or copper

Often I let the bowl speak to me... the design and overall look usually help me determine which edge treatment looks best - shiny copper or darkened copper. 

But I thought it'd be fun to find out what you think! 

2 versions of same enamelware copper bowl with abstract landscape drawing, black or copper edge?

I can polish the edge to reveal the raw copper, or patina it to a darkened black edge. Both highlight details of the bowl in different ways. 

Which do you prefer? 

A - shiny copper

B - blackened copper

I’m going with B, but it’s a hard choice!

I vote A, but purely personal preference. B is lovely as well, but copper for me.

I love both. I love the copper because it causes all the other colors to really pop. The black mutes the elements a bit more for a more subdued elegant look. I vote A.

copper! like the gold pod earrings too, kt. but I always like all the finishes, just depends on what clothing the wearer has.
beautiful!

Why do you always give us tough choices! I’m leaning toward the black, though. Feels like a frame to your lovely composition.

Slight preference for the blackened copper with the blues in the landscape. But shiny copper is also cool ¯\(ツ)

I like A. Both look great and both pull from the color in the bowl which I love. But I like the bare metal/copper bc it shows what it is made of (one could just think it’s painted ceramic.) Both are very lovely, but copper definitely is my choice.

Whichever color is on the outside of the bowl.
