Spalted Hackberry Bowl

Recently I was asked by a group about what piece would be my favorite turning. This led to some reflection and thinking. I decided this oak piece is my favorite. During my look backward, I realized I'd gotten away from the type of turning that I enjoy the most, thicker bowls and ebonized oak. I went to the shop/garage and found a crotch hackberry log that my dad gave me last year buried under curlies, bark and dust. I cut it in half and turned this with one side. 11" wide and 4" tall. Finish is danish oil.

As always, comments/critiques please. PS...Dad do you still have some of the hackberry?
