Eating Bowl From Birch

I made myself a nice new eating bowl today from a lovely piece of Birch that I've been saving for a little while, the bowl was originally designed to be circular, but as i carved it with my adze and crook knife, it just seemed right to elongate the bowl slightly,  giving approx final dimensions of 6 inches long and 5 inches wide.

I still have quite a bit of work to do to it as it is a little  thick and heavy in places and i need to fine carve the exterior and refine the lines somewhat, before I can enjoy eating my breakfast out of it, i guess to be fair, i probably need to carve myself a Birch spoon to go with it so it becomes a matching set, well, any excuse right?.
