All three are beautiful bowls. The recipients of all will cherish them, forever.

Am I correct in assuming the shell motifs are imbedded in some material other than wood?

Yes you are correct, they are imbedded in a two pot liquid resin, that is used on boats. There are many different types out there, some go by the name "liquid glass" some are better then others you just have to experiment.Word of warning though, they normally are highly toxic, I make sure there's plenty of air circulation in the garage when I pour it, also very very good air respirators with filters should be used as the fumes are toxic, and gloves.

very nice piece. I hope you find something else less toxic to work with..for you and all of us, and the air we breathe. Your relatives should be delighted with the gift

One of the prettiest laminations I've seen. What gorgeous wood. The resin edge banding works well. Nicely done!
