This is a multi-segmented lathe turned bowl that was inspired by the work of Hal Metlitzky. It is made up of hundreds of individual pieces of exotic and domestic hardwoods (I have not actually counted them). I call it the swirl bowl. All woods appear in their natural colors.

OldWolf already said “mesmerizing”, and that was the word I was going to use. What other superlatives are available? I can think of a lot, but wow.

Welcome to LJs, by the way. I think you’ll fit in here.
