Really nice effort, great bowl. The angles for the feature ring are unique, coming off that circle in there. Only way I can think you did that was to build the angled part of the block as a segmented ring, drill it, and add the plug, cut them in half?

Great job as usual. Your segments are so unusual. I sometimes try to copy them. Thanks for posting.

Absolutely love it.
The colours are a really good match, and make the bowl “JUMP OUT”
Great job.
