hi fellow L J this is my latest segment bowl this one was sold as soon as i put the last finishing touches to it . i was working on it when a friend of mines that is a painter and Artie’s that has a lot of connections with some galleries around Ireland she takes some of my pieces and puts them in a exhibit she had a friend with her and he fell in love with the bowl and bought it before he left . i got 250 euro for it not a bad price i think so i had to take some photos of it in a hurry that is why the photos are not that good the glare of the flash is on them must get a proper place set up for taking photographs anyway that was only the start of the good news marie had some money for me she handed me 1000 euro 4 of my bowls was sold and she said the galleria wanted 4 more to replace the ones the soled great news it is handy to have a friend like marie yes my wife knowes marie she is my brother s wifes sister

sorry, I only comment on good stuff now, jk. But this is good stuff, beautiful piece. I can’t wait to get this garage cleaned out where I can try some segmented work on a smaller scale of course.
