Now that is one sweeeeet bowl!!
The elevation is what makes it. Without it, it’s just another beautiful turning. With the bird’s eye, it rocks.

Great job!....ya got to love that wood for its spectacular color. Well done for sure.
I’ll second what Joe said….purpleheart is not for the “fainthearted” to turn…it has a tendency to tear out and chip….I only use very sharp tools on it when turning – if not…be prepared to do a bit of heavy sanding. I’ve had to caution a lot of new turners not to try PH as their first wood…and especially not to try it on their first pen turning…whew.
