This PurpleHeart and Curly Maple open segmented bowl measures about 10 inches in diameter and 5 inches tall and is composed of 529 individual pieces of wood. A friend and his wife purchased one of the first open segmented pieces I made, it was a tealight candle holder, 24 segmentes per row and alternating Purpleheart and Curly Maple. He asked me to make a bowl about twice as large as the candle holder for her birthday. To make it look similar, I made this bowl with 48 open segments per row. This was a first for me.
