She’s a beauty! It would break my heart, too, to have the heart of the bowl break!

Love it. So it was turned flat then took on that shape while drying? Did you hang it or anything to encourage that shape?

Rick M., these pieces always bend in an interesting way. Constraining it asks for trouble.

When the project’s page came up on my computer screen I was drawn directly to your project! I’s certainly is a beautiful work of craftsmanship and what an eye catcher! If it were a turner and it was me making this elegant piece I would of been a nervous wreck! Excellent work! Love the title!

Very nice bowl…. and I think the crack does nothing to detract from the piece. Wood is like that… and as Leonard Cohen says in one of his songs…. “There’s a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.”
