Very unique. It’s got a whimsical feel to it, yet it also looks like it could be a traditional bowl of some old world region. I like it!

Just remarkable one of the finest bowls I have seen. How did you get those lines so straight all the way around the bowl. I am such a novice to carving.

A truly enjoyable piece to look at. It is always good to see a new twist to a familiar shape. Good Job!

Viewing from above makes one dizzy. Are the dots on the top ring of different sizes, or is that angle distortion in the photograph? Very interesting. That was a nice piece of wood to set an off-center pattern in. I like it!

Barb all the dots are the same size, it’s just a bad pic.
