Is there any particular way to solder or weld thin stainless steel? Answered

I'd like to reshape, attach, and make some art out of some stainless steel bowls [http://bit.ly/IgeDXA]. I've naught a clue how to approach the issue of connecting them, since they are so thin, and I'm not too sure what sort of connecting material I could use. (Would regular solder work, or would I need a specific kind?)
I've only ever soldered a bunch of wires, and advice on this would be great since I'm going off the deep end into uncharted territory.

So are you attaching pot-metal or aluminum ? ?
