    I like the first one for its aesthetics and practicality (price). I like the second better for fit in the hand, aesthetics and the cool blue stem. But I would have to bite my lip and shut my eyes paying an additional $70 when I hit the buy button.

    I think I like the second one you posted best. A tin of Moontrance would go well with that.

    I like his mahogany calabashes. Not a bad price considering what gourds are going for.

    ok. I have been speaking with Sinan via email, and since coloring IS a big part of why Im picking up a meer, I have decided to go with a smooth bowl as he has indicated it will color more evenly and faster than the carved ones.

    Since this is my first Id like to make things a bit easier on my self. Im fairly certain my next will be carved.

    at this point im deciding between these two...

    They are pretty similar, but one is a brandy and one is an apple.

    Thoughts?
