Judges Comments
Betty : Excellent form. You have achieved a beautiful repeating grain pattern with the way you have cut and put together the segments. I like the choice of woods. Good craftsmanship.
Herb : Nice line to the bowl. The colors compliment the design.
Joe : I liked the shape and simplicity of this small segmented piece. On the close-up picture the grain of the bubinga looks very nice and well balanced.
