Funny how people avoid knots, the pith etc on many pieces but they look great on bowls !

That’s a bowl with a lot of character. Hope it stays in shape for you.

Good looking bowl, I have always cut the pith out of my bowls but it looks okay. This is a good looking bowl with a lot of character! nice finish too.

Thanks for sharing

Was this bowl turned green? If so wondering what shape it will take after it dries.
I love the look of the bowl and really like leaving the pith. No matter what happens this should turn out to be a great work of art.
