I think I was the first person to view this thread, but I didn't reply right away ... I needed to think about it first. Since you asked for our thoughts, I'll give you mine ... but remember that I haven't turned very many bowls at all, let alone a 12" one! And I haven't ever dyed anything, either.
There you have 'em - words from a "know-very-little" ... as opposed to a "know-it-all".
* I like the overall shape of the bowl.
* The wall thickness (going by the width of the rim) and the nearly(?) flat rim seem appropriate for a utilitarian bowl, but the tinting and cracks give the bowl a more "display-only" look ... so the combination is a bit confusing to my eye. Another possible point of confusion is the contrast between the tinted outside and the non-tinted inside?
* You did a really good job with the "tint gradient". The sequence you have fades nicely as it approaches the rim.
* One thing I was wondering about was the placement of the darkest color. It seems to be "hidden" underneath the bowl. You probably did that on purpose, to keep it a bit "understated" (ha ha) and to keep the "visual weight" low on the bowl? In my mind I've been trying to reverse the color sequence and place the darkest color near the rim ...just to see what it would look like
. I haven't been able to manage it yet, and I'm not sure it would work with the un-tinted interior anyway.
