Bowls are a funny form to me. I've not settled on a particular design of bowl that I just love every aspect of. I have numerous bowls in my kitchen from a variety of potters, and even those I often pick up and think, "this would be better if..." Or I use particular bowls for particular food dishes, salads, etc. This could be that I am often most critical of my own work, but I do think that putting some thought to the function and use of a form is very helpful in seeing that piece's future use and likely abuse (I'm rough on my dishes, are you?).
So I made these recently. I like the direction of keeping a fairly wide marly/edge, as I find that attractive, and especially with the rim being salted and only the interior being glazed, I think the elements work. However, some bowls I have made recently ended up being rather thin on the edge, and I fear that would lead to quick damage or destruction. For these bowls I made a rather thick edge.
I'm working up my trimming skills on larger dishes and such, but for bowls since they're quick to make, I'd really like not to trim them, but I don't know whether I like the sides of the bowl, and the underside of the marly/edge.
And since I am avoiding the trimming on these, I chose to cut the bottoms like I do most of my mugs with a large spiral wire.
Does anyone have thoughts on the perfect bowl form?
