>Absolutely beautiful platter Chris. Your choice of form is excellent, and I really like the attention you gave the foot/base. I have one question for you. I'm not sure whether it was a distortion of the camera or not, but it looks as if your rim bead has a bit of a flat on it. The transition from rim to bowl is a critical one and with such a simple design (I don't mean simple in the sense of easy, but rather simple elegance) crispness of any feature is important. Of course if it was camera distortion, this is moot. You've chosen a stunning piece of wood and shown it off beautifully. Competition will be tight.
