This bowl is around 10” in diameter and 4.5” deep and is from Tulip Poplar. The deep purples contrast nicely with the creams and blacks that swirl .

I wish I had a better camera and lighting :(

Thanks for looking

Beautiful. Nice work. We have some poplar here and it seems to spalt very quickly.

Kyle, you chose a gorgeous piece of wood for this turning. It has a wonderful color and graining to it. I am sure it was a lot of fun turning this piece.

Fantastic bowl. Love the shape and wood. Don’t you just love all the colors that Poplar can have in it?

Keep it up.

That is very pretty!
I would not have guessed that to be Poplar.
Great Job.

I’m with WoodenFrog, I would have guessed it was walnut with sapwood or something, if you hadn’t told us. That’s one beautiful bowl!
