Great looking bowls Branch, nothing like a happy customer. Like your designs specially the bottoms.
Know what he means with them being the same but different, we have twin cats same temperament but ones cream the others grey. Just joking.

I don’t know how you did it, parting with the bowls that is. Very nice bowls, and great attention to detail. I need to learn to make something like that.

I’m taking my first turning class in a couple of weeks. I can’t wait to try developing skills to do something like this. Great job!
