advise on cutting a burl

Doug
>I have a burl slab (maple I think) that measures 16 X 16 X 9 inches thick. I would like to make two or three vessels from it. In order to take advantage of the burls - or is it eyes - should the vessels be end grain or side grain - or does it make any difference?

I tried to add a photo but could not get it small enough.
