Spalted Silver Maple Bowl

I turned this bowl from a piece of silver maple trunk I'd had sitting around for about four years; it turned out to have a very pretty pattern inside.  This bowl is turned with no foot on the bottom - see the second photo.  It therefore will "rock" (or spin, if you want!), and does not sit "flat."  However, although it may seem odd, it won't tip over - it just rocks if you push down-and-release the rim.  Try that on a bowl with a foot - especially a small one. The bowl is finished with Watco Danish Oil (Natural) and measures 7 ½" across and is 3 ¾" deep.
