>But the blue background simply looked better than gray. With my standard background it was largely impossible to discern the shape of the bowl pictured. Kind of like the contrast, to be honest.

Anyway, this is a tall black cherry bowl, about 12" wide x 10" tall. I made it very egg shaped, but the narrow end of the egg unlike Bill Neddow's fabulous egg shaped bowls which are generally much wider eggs, modeled I figure on the fat side of an egg. I debated putting a lip or decoration on the rim and decided to simply roll it in. Since this will be a display piece I figured a tiny little raised foot would set it off the table nicely. Not an easy form to work with! Just a tiny bit off and the egg illusion disappears totally. Sanded to 4000 with abralon discs and then waxed. All comments welcomed. Please feel free to critique.
