Hey Branch, this is a very nice turning, your choice of colours and the way you assembled them is sharp. your top ring seems a bit too heavy , but overall I really like it. good work keep smiling John

Excellent work on you bowl. Love the feature ring and the star in the bottom.

Very nice 3D bowl, nice selection of timber. Only, you needed to cut the inside bottom a little wider, so you would expose all the six corners clearer. Welcome back and thaks for the post.

Beautiful feature ring and bottom! It’s not the top ring being to heavy, I think it’s the bottom portion or foot being to tall that makes it look top heavy, makes it look more like a pot than a bowl. But that’s just my eye and I’m no expert, just a thought. Very nice just the same.

I agree with Sam on the larger bottom. Joints all look tight and the Feature ring is is a real feature to the bowl.
