Here is a natural edge bowl and "I made it at the TechShop". And you can make one there also.

I started with a crotch of cherry wood that I could not use in my wood. I knew it was from the fall cut and that would work great for an edge bowl. I first mounted it on the lathe the same as a spindle between centers. I then shape the out side of the bowl and then put a foot with a lip that can be secured to a chuck. Then I flip the bowl around and chuck it up using the foot as a hold. Now it is like turning a somewhat normal bowl but with the shape it is turned using the shadow.  You will need to take soft cuts on the outer edge. After it was done I finished it with some english oil to keep the natural feel. These are fun to do as green because  it will change its shale as it dries out.
