Little Persimmon Bowl

Here is a pretty (I think) little persimmon bowl, turned green.  The rim is grey as a result of the blank being sealed with wax for a few months before it was worked.  My guess is  the moisture being trapped against the surface of the wood- which shed its cellular moisture first (the interior retaining it’s cellular moisture, ie green), and therefore “weathered” grey.  The bowl has also distorted as it has dried.
