Can you upload a sample file? (drag your rhino file onto the message window)
Is the image on the right what you are trying to achieve?

Like this?
01- your original
02 - dupfaceborder to extract the crv edges of your 2d shape, place your bowl (with top removed) onto the centre of your shape, and ‘project’ your curves onto the bowl
03 - use your projected curves to trim the bowl (make sure the curves are closed, sel open crv and close any holes)
03v2 - offset surface to desired thickness

There is probably a more elegant way to do it- that’s one option.
