You gonna leave the bowl plain like that? Or maybe carve a face of some sort on it? (think Meerschaum style :-)

I refined the shape a little today, not enough to warrant another picture but it does look better. The shank ended up a little narrower than I wanted due to a little goof on the lathe but I’m hoping it will look alright.

@Joe, I am thinking on it. Won’t be a face but I do plan on rusticating the bottom where I whittled. It might stay the way it is with knife marks or I might try carving a surface texture. So the top will be smooth but the bottom will be rough. Then I’ll accent the rough part with some dye or stain. It’s a learning experience, I don’t expect the first one to be perfect.
