Thanks, haha. Maybe 10 more, but I’ve been cherry picking the blanks that have dried. Picking the ones that look the coolest. They’ll probably start being less dramatic as I get to them.

Great job, great looking bowl. Like the way you turned the lip of the bowl. Looking at the bowl is makes the think of a map of the world.
