I tried doing something different by making a segmented bowl with curved lines, most I see (though still impressive) are made with straight lines. Woods used are purpleheart, yellowheart and birdseye maple. The birdseye maple was dyed.

Well, it IS different, but so much more than that. A stunning piece!

I suspect there is as much creativity in the process as the design.

I too was hoping to see some pictures of the blank as well.
Amazing!

Thanks for the kind words, here's a link to some pictures showing the blank before I turned it. Some steps I left out, the blank was parted into rings and the rings glued back together in a rough bowl shape, similar to an “economy bowl”.
