I am self taught wood turner and learn a lot from books, videos, lectures. One thing have learned is people have different words to describe the same thing whether bowl or spindle turning.
Not sure where pick up a bowl is like a composition with a beginning, body and ending that has served me well organizing my thoughts before and while turning a bowl. There are so many ways you can treat the rim, body, and base of a bowl to arrive at a pleasing form.
Betty Scarpino wrote a very nice article for woodworking.com titled “Anatomy of a Bowl.”
If you need a lot of rules have a look at this article by Laura & Bob Uden, “Woodturning Design.”
