That is really cool. I too, love the shape. Simple and elegant. Nice work.

This bowl gave me so many problems! flew off the chuck 3 times! Warped horribly after drying! The bottom in the center is so thin you can almost push your finger through it but still ended up being one of my favorites.
I love the color, the simple yet nice straight grain!
