    They are both very nice, Stephen.

    But lose the foot on the bowl. The curve of the bowl is a lovely organic line. The foot clashes with its geometric line. Just let the curve die to the table.

    Just my 2 bits....

    Both are great pieces. I agree with Paul. I would have just turned off the foot. Just my preference.

    I like 'em, Steve. I'm also in the "no foot" camp, but that's a personal preference. Great looking spalted maple, too.

    Man, the term "bowl and pot" sure has a different meaning now than it did when I was in high school.
