Voila, bowls with 8 separate construction steps! (Please, no sniggering from the throwing crowd...)
For phase-2 bowls I'll accentuate the two side seams for a bit more pizzazz.
I could also make some three sides bowls in this style to go with the three sided plates. Maybe they don't have to have the flange foot?!? Possibilities are probably, as always, endless.
