John -- I really like the bowl. The sponge painting on the rim nicely frames the interior, making something special out of the fairly plain grain. You turned (no pun intended) 'just another bowl' into an heirloom.
Having said that, I really love the mobile base for your light stand. There are a million different ways you could have put wheels on your stand. You chose one that is simply elegant -- and one that I never would have thought of. Very well done!
