"Work of art"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This bowl is larger than I thought and it is a work of art unto itself. I would not put anything rough in it because then you would not see the beauty of the lines in the material. It is well carved and smooth, worthy of an honored place. It is so much more than a catch all...
