These are footed bowls (tazze).
A tazza (Italian, "cup", plural tazze) is a shallow saucer-like dish either mounted on a stem and foot or on a foot alone.
Addition of a foot to the bowl presents new design opportunities.
I was using sandblasting on these bowls. To increase effects I applied color patinating wax.
Pear, Walnut, Cherry. I like working with pear. It is a pleasure to carve.  It can be burned to different shades of brown or black.
