Thx for updated pic. I’d dado out most of material on one side in a series of passes. With the last pass on the handle side leave enough material for the curve to be shaped in. Then double tape stick a runner to same thickness of stock on the side with waste removed. Start dadoing out the waste on other side ( again leaving enough wood to accommodate the curve). You can Affix a similar runner on that side for stability. For the curve I agree with prior poster that length of shaft on bowl bit will limit how high you can go with the lid detail. A card scraper with a radius may be the way to go if you don’t have enough bit.
