The bowl in the bottom right corner shows the bowl the inspired this weeks set of bowl.  I like how the depth of the relief suddenly changes as the carving gets closer to the exact bottom of the bowl.  My previous bowls with foot rings often terminated the line just at the point of this transition.  By doing away with the foot ring, you can see how the pattern culminates at a point.

I left more of the original skin of the bowls as well.  This shows the texture from first creation on the wheel, the smooth cut of my tool, and the jagged transition the separates the two.
