    The 2 HOUR BOWL!!!

    NO, I did not complete this NE Maple bowl in two hours.

    I finished it late Friday evening and took it to the Saturday morning market.

    It was tha last piece I set out, after showing it to a potter friend. Time 8 AM. At 10:00 AM a previous customer stopped by. They have a black Lab who happens to like beggin strips(I give a treat to well mannered dogs at the market). While I was feeding "James" and giving him his ration of bellyrub and lovin'. The wife called over and asked if potpurie(SP) oil would hurt the finish.
    I said no and the husband said "Put a sold sign on it. We'll bring a check next week - tomorrow.

    It lasted two hours before it sold. A record for me.

    Congrats, Bruce. That is a pretty fast turnaround time on a bowl.

    I may also have to steal your doggie treat idea, too. At a some shows, I've had a few little finger tops stashed out of sight. I like to give them to kids (with the parents' permission) who are extra well-behaved, or those who just look like they need something to smile about.
