"Stargazer" Segmented Bowl
This bowl is a custom-designed segmented bowl made up of 888 individual pieces of wood. It gets its name from the popular Stagazer Lily.
It is constructed of 18 rings, each one different, that were laminated together starting with the next-to-the-top ring. The segmented rim was added last.
The woods used in this bowl are cherry, figured maple, mahogany, and two color patterns of SpectraPly, which is a hardwood formed from laminated pigmented layers of birch veneer.
The wall thickness of this bowl is about ¼ of an inch.
Dimensions: 13″ wide at the top, 6-3/8″ tall, and 2-7/8″ at the base.
This bowl is finished with multiple coats of a low-gloss Danish oil finish.
Use and care instructions: Dust and fingerprints can be removed with a soft cloth. Do not use this bowl to hold anything that retains moisture.
