Though this particular Water Lily bears a longer shank than the Rose or Camellia that we've seen, I couldn't say that it's definitely part-and-parcel for the shape. (It would make sense, though, given how a water lily's stem needs to extend to the surface of the water in which it grows.) Like the Rose it bears nothing more than three smooth, winding cuts that work perfectly to suggest petals just at the point of blooming. Where the bowl differs from the Rose is in the Reuleaux triangle, rather than circular rim-bevel, which works to give said "petals" themselves a suggestion of triangular form - like those of an actual water lily.
