Tiger/Nightmare Before Xmas Bowl for Wife

With this bowl I experimented with a totally new method. It takes some real three dimensional mind bending to “see what the final outcome is going to be.
My wife wanted a Nightmare before Christmas themed bowl (yellow, black, purple). So, I used Yellowheart for the tiger stripes, Purpleheart and Walnut where used for the body. This is the first bowl I have made for someone specifically and my wife loves it!
There are tons of challenges in making a bowl like this. The biggest challenge is always trying to lay out the flat blank in a way that will be appealing when the process is over. I think this style is very intriguing and almost mysterious in the design.
I’m really happy with this experiment and the final outcome.

  • I love this bowl. The yellow almost look like it has a light behind it.
