i'm not sure if these really fit in this category, but i guess they're housewares?  anyway, i started learning woodturning a while ago for a school presentation, and now i have a whole bunch of these bowls.  i wish i could make more, but i don't have the tools i was borrowing anymore.  sad.

the picture of that last one is awful, so you can't really tell that it's actually this beautiful deep brown shade because it's walnut.  i made so many mistakes on it (long flat side?  not supposed to be there) but i couldn't bring myself to throw it away because i only had that one piece of walnut.  the first and third are made of cherry, and the second is soft maple.
anyway, bowls!  tada!

Those turned out really nice! It would almost be a shame to put anything in them and hide the beautiful woodgrain.

Those are absolutely beautiful!

Power is strength and the ability to see yourself through your own eyes and not through the eyes of another. It is being able to place a circle of power at your own feet and not take power from someone else's circle.

I like the last one best, because it is so unusual. You did a fantastic job. Did you use a lathe?

Boy, those look a lot better than the bowls from my first ceramics class.

And the last one isn't messed up-- it's wabi sabi!

the last bowl?
it's not meant for holding things on display.
  I instantly thought "why scrap it?! you just put it in by the front door on that teeny table that doesn't hold anything. for your keys,change,just dump out your pockets at the end of the day."

of course,if the bowl is big my idea is useless,but reguardless it'll fit against a wall better so you're not wasting valuable space in your kitchen,bedroom,office etcetera.
