Character bowls and my summer of turning day 5

Sometimes in my finished pieces I can see things in the grain of the wood like seascapes, mountains, trees, planets and sometimes even faces. In the bowl above I can see a face. The eyes, nose and mouth. I guess it’s a good thing that I can’t see ears sticking out, huh? Can you see …
