This bowl was going to be another black one to replace all the ones that sold but I just wasn’t pleased with the finish. The answer was to cover the bulk of the bowl with my acrylic flower motif. The lid is a piece of cherry with an inset black spindle with is a deviation from the spindles I normally turn. It just helps with the lift on the top half of the bowl. I had thought about bringing the flowers all the to the top but I think just bringing them up the sides was just enough. The bowl is maple and has been left naked inside.
