Two out of my three bowls were thrown on the wheel. I like using the wheel, although it can be difficult and frustrating. One of them turned out just fine while the other ended up having a very weak spot that turned into a hole. Instead of starting over, I made more small holes and added cracks to them to make it look intentional. That was my favorite out of the three because it looks old and damaged. The third bowl was made out of wire. I took a styrofoam bowl and molded the wire around it. I really liked how that one turned out, too.
