My first attempt to make an open spiral bowl. I am not real thrilled with it, but for a first I’m happy enough. I learned a great deal , and that’s always good. Canarywood 8 inch diam and about 3 tall.

Have to walk before you run! I’ll bet you fall asleep working out how to improve it. So, we’re waiting on the next one!

You could have fooled me. It looks like a real professional job. I have never seen a spiral bowl before but yours is wonderful. Thanks for sharing this project

Gaining experience is always a good thing (like with my latest). It looks to be a theme worth exploring.

A bit of a new direction here Michelle, boy you could realy go to market on this with some texture, pyro, maybe some gilders paste, what a great palette to work on, great job :))
