Love the 3-D look. Great job! Must have been crazy fitting 168 pieces…I’ve been practicing some segmented turning. Hope to join you in your obsession soon!

Very wonderful version of a segmented bowl and it is easy to see that you are having fun making them. I
really like that dual sided bottom section, I had to take a couple of looks to make sure my eyes and memory
were not play tricks on me, and to just enjoy it. Thank you for sharing, and keep having fun.
