Curved Tool rests?

Mk
>Yesterday I was turning one of the largest bowl I have ever done. It was about 11" in diameter. Everthing went very well. However, when hollowing out the inside, the close and closer I got to the edge, I would get vibration. Even if I put the tool rest close I still got it. But only on the walls of the bowl, not the bottom of it. I tried lighter cuts, but it still occured.

Could it be that my tool rest was still to far and I should invest in a curved tool rest?

Where do I find curved tool rests?

Thanks!
