views 4c as a bowl blank (WITH natural stain) and view 4a raw (fresh off the lathe)--- the lighter color of the raw version relative to the finished bowl due to two factors --- first the raw shot was taken with a different camera but more importantly the bowl sat around for over a year before I put on the final finish so it darkened some with age although not as much as would seem to be the case from these pics; the raw pic shows the colors as lighter than they really were.
