Very often bowl are made as a comission from a loved tree that has had to be removed.When this is the case the bowl has to be turned quite thin as the wood is Green(wet and unseasoned). By turning a bowl to a thin section the bowl can dry easier. There is always the risking of cracking after turning useing this method and also of distortion where the timber moves in the drying process.I believe that this enhances the appearance of the bowl.He has even turned wooden light shades to order.
