A lovely piece of Magnolia provides the "canvas" for this different piece. As I was turning the interior of the bowl on my lathe, I decided to try something I had never done. My initial efforts at hollowing left a shape that looked to me like a "spinning vortex," so I emphasized that shape and left it on the inside. The result is the bowl looks like it's spinning, while standing still. Would make a great conversation piece or a gift for a special friend who could put Belgian Chocolates in the center! Super-smooth to the touch and has a food-safe finish.
