    not sure bowl

    Well i've been trying to post these since yesterday. Don't really know what i think of it, but it is what it is at this point. I'm suppose to try setting up a booth in august, and this will be part to it. Just trying to get a bunch of different things made. They did a interview with me for a locial paper the other day, about my turning, so i hope that helps sell somethings at the show. OBTW i still can't get pics to up load on IE, had to get the wife to get me in Fox fire to get them to load.

    Looks good Stephen, nice touch! Best to you on the booth, should be an easy sell-out from what I've seen of your stuff

    I like it - its like a marble bowl with a wood insert. The rim treatment is what I think sells it for me, offers a nice delineation between the two compositions. I think it would make a really cool centerpiece bowl or a display on a sideboard.

    Good luck at the booth!

    I'm with Ryan. I think the marble/wood look - and the way you pulled the two together - will make this piece sell quickly.
