These are the rough stages of two bowls I am creating from Mango wood for my friend Franziska in Switzerland.

The request here was for a small bowl from which muesli and cereal could be eaten, and a slightly larger 'personal' salad/food bowl.

The pictures are of a stage very early in the creation process. They are rough sanded just to look presentable for the photograph. During the next couple weeks, the forms will be fined down and the shape will be refined so that the subtle overhand will be emphasized a little more.
