Bravo, Eric.  Nicely done.  And, very well written also.  You may have another career some day writing how-to-do-it pieces that people actually read all the way through to the end!   A quick question ... I know that you said 12 to 10 guage sheet.  That is much heavier than anything I have tried.  But, is there a possibility that an english wheel would be able to give you that bowl and not add anything to the Arizona Heat?
