you are viewing one bowl from opposite sides. I call this the BBNB because to me the first one looks like baby bird heads with their beaks pointed up and right. the 2nd pic looks like their tails. Walnut & Ambrosia Maple about 10 inches in diam
thanks for viewing and comments are always enjoyed

This is a beautiful piece. I haven’t seen segmented turnings in your projects. Are you venturing into a new area?
Cheers
