I managed to get a few more bowls (11 of them ) ready for the upcoming open house next Saturday at the Carroll County Arts Center.
Above are a few that stand out but two of my favorites are here
this one is Blood Wood, wormy Chestnut, Walnut and Curly Maple

This one is made up of remnants of 3 other bowls. Just couldn’t stand to throw the left overs away so a little machining and some strips of blood wood does the trick. This bowls consists of Walnut, Cherry, Curly Maple, Aromatic Cedar, Sassafras and BKP. Probably missed a couple but you get the idea.
Look closely and you can see the pairs of 2,2 and 2

Thanks for looking and improvement advise is always welcome

These bowls are outstanding and the designs and patterns are wonderful. They are very nice eye catchers.

Yet another set of fantastic looking bowls, very nice work indeed. The patterns are mesmerizing, especially those arches overlapping other contrasting arches, they’re like a puzzle to the imagination. Great work.

It’s not really a show – I’ve been invited to be one of the featured artists for the month of June by the Carroll County Art Center. Open house is next Saturday June 2nd.
I’ve never done anything like this so I don’t know what to expect
