Second attempt at turned Vessel. I took to heart some comments I received about keeping the curve consistent and not incorporating a return sweep on the foot. I think this one turned out much better then the lace wood vessel I posted earlier. I especially liked the Firey look of the red Heart wood which is why I chose it for the feature ring – sort of looks like a picture of a burning landscape. I also used some Ebony for the first time on this one which I really liked. I often sell my bowls but just can’t part with this one – wife loves it too much. Vessel is approx. 7 inchs at the middle in dia. and approx. 9 inchs tall.

I agree with you on the red heart – very pretty. Might be interpreted as a desert sunset as well…

Smoking hot bowl. I’ve never really cared much for the segmented bowls because I’m too lazy to go through all the set up and meticulous creation process. But this one just might make me give it a shot…and that’s saying a LOT because there are tons of segemented bowls on LJs. That is just a beautiful bowl and I’ve got some redheart out there in that garage. Wondering how it’ll age in the light though…hate for you to lose that vibrance.

Thanks for your kind remarks – but sorry I don’t have any pictures of the build up however there is a wonderful video on line done by Melcome Tibbetts at tahoeturner.com. Under his how to link there is a segment called Seggy’s Dream – I highly recommend it – it’s a cute little video of how vessels and segmented projects are built.
