A great job! I’ve just read up on segmented bowls. I am even more impressed now that I know more! Nice design – beautiful wood choices.

It is really great! It is waaaay out of my league, but I sure wish some one would teach me how to make one!

Fantastic piece of art! I agree with LittlePAw, WAY out of my league! Am working my way up the ladder and hope to someday get this good. Love the pattern and shape. Just SPECTACULAR!!

Keep up the inspirational work.

If memory serves me, Malcolm used that pattern in a vessel called “Fit for King” You’ve done a beautiful job.

Fantastic looking piece of art. That will look good anywhere it is displayed. I just want to turn something out of one piece routinely wtih good results. Your work is definitely a motivator.
