flaws/issues: The glue line at the bottom of the BOX has developed a slight stress separation that you can both see and feel so I have lowered the price from $125 to $95.

LATER: the stress separation mentioned above has worsened to the point that if you hold the bowl up to the light you can see all the way through it in this area. Additionally, another much less significant separation has developed along the inner edge of the cumaru in view 8. Because this is still a very nice bowl, I've dropped the price to clearance rather than put it in the barbecue pit as I often do when these separations develop.

comments: several nice omega curves inside the rim and ovals around the outside.
