Asymetrical Box Elder Bowl
While it's sort of round, it really is very asymetrical in a round sort of way. The walls of the bowl are carved thin--perhaps 1/4 inch in most places, although the thickness varyies. (In carving, the wood tends to dictate shape and form. Unlike a turned bowl where the wood is spun around an axis while an edge cuts away the wood evenly, carving tools are not so precise. The softness and hardness of the wood as well as the texture and direction of the grain create bumps and groves that just won't go away with more carving and more sanding.
