Comments from the voters:
They all look great.
They really bowled me over!
Love them all! Hard to choose.
They are all stunning, but I really like No. 10 as the bowl itself has so many techniques combined it's a real challenge.
Beautiful entries. #1 was a close runner-up.
I think this is the best group of entries for a monthly challenge that I have seen.
Hard to choose as always everyone did a great job.
Great work.
These were exquisite! It was hard to choose.
Beautiful work on all.
Such inspiration for inexperienced clayers like me. As always, ALL the items are beautiful, creative and great eye candy.
Always such a tough decision! All of these are just lovely!
Great work!
All the bowls are beautiful. This was one of the most difficult challenges to choose from yet!
Brilliant bowls, really hard to choose.
Great designs, I like the special ones most!
Beautiful work....I would use all of them :)
They are all so beautiful, which makes hard to choose but keep up the great work girls!
Top notch! You all aced it.
Your work, all of you, is just wonderful. You are all winners really!
One of the best challenges yet!
Great work. Love the variety of techniques used and the finish of the pieces.
It was hard to choose... all are such wonderful works of art.
This was really tough, really tough. I changed my votes several times. Just want to say they are all winners!
Very creative and different.
Very beautiful and inspirational work! Looking at the wonderful things that talented artists can create with clay, helps this newbie (of 3 years!) stay motivated to try new things and hopefully develop some techniques to one day be able to give back to the community! :)
Love them!!!
I love the jade leaves and dragonfly. The two yarn bowls are very uniquely different, they are useable as well as beautiful pieces of art. The three artist should be proud of their work.
I have never had as hard a time as this to pick just 3 !! These are the most gorgeous bowls I have ever seen!!! When I win lotto I am buying all of them!
So creative.
Really great work again this month!
Love the creativity of these bowls!
They're all so unique and beautifully done! Another tough choice this month, they all deserve a prize!
Gallery quality work!
