Branch, Nice design and very nice execution. I’ve never done a segmented bowl but I hope to this year. Only thing I might ponder would be an extremely thin(1/128” maybe) Ash strip between the Purpleheart & Ebony. It still looks good like it is though.

Fantastic bowl, Branch. You deserve more than what you got for the bowl. Waiting to see your other projects.

I really like this bowl. I like the simplicity of it but overall it is very stricking. Many times a segmented bowl is overly complicated.
