Subject:
Golden Rule Question

George Van
>If the Golden Rule of short to long side is 1:1.618, how does a salad bowl 4” deep and 14” in diameter with or without a foot qualify? I see a lot of bowls by the “Masters” that do not seem to follow the rules.

Are the rules not used for utilitarian bowls and vessels or am I misunderstanding the proportions?

Thanks, George
