Wow, that is a fascinating bowl, one of the nicest natural edges I have seen. Maybe the reason it stands out is that the bark is so thick.
I would like to see a few more pictures of the edge if you have em.

Yep, I really like the bark on persimmon. This is the first I’ve worked with it, and I have plenty more to experiment with. I’ll probably try a smaller diameter bowl next to raise the edges up, something with a less exaggerated undulation in other words.

It is amazing what nature, combined with true skill can create. That bowl is simply amazing.
