A curly maple and bloodwood vase. Approx 8×8 and 613 pieces. (36 pieces per row) As a segmented turner I am finding that the more pieces per row, the lighter(less clunky??) the bowl looks, thus the 36 per row. This is about the most in- your- face design I have ever created. It is bold. Thanks for looking and if you take time to comment, I appreciate it a ton!

very nice shape. Bold yes, but still attractive. I really like figured maple in woodturnings.

Good Job!
