After transferring the bubble (bowl to-be) from the blow pipe to the punty to open it up, it can be opened just a bit or hardly at all to make a closed bowl or it can be opened a bit further or as much as you wish and of varying degrees to make an open mouthed bowl or an open bowl. Although I am partial to closed bowls, open bowls can be and are just as much "art" as a closed bowl is. Open bowls are not only for soup eating or only used as cereal bowls. They can be used to keep things in, such as fruit, knick-knacks, candy, or nothing at all. A bowl all by itself can be art all unto itself.
Please enjoy looking through my open bowls that I have made. Again, if you see a bowl that you may be interested in, it may be in my Etsy Shop. But if it isn’t, let me know and I will put it in there for you. If you are having difficulty finding the bowl that you want, let me know and I will be happy to give you a hand.
