The segmented bowls on this page are made by carefully gluing small pieces of dry wood to form rings that have between 12 and 48 segments. The rings are then stacked to form the bowl blank that is used to make the bowl. We use a mixture of domestic and exotic hardwoods with different colors.

The most common method for making segmented bowls is to use radial segments. A line drawn between adjacent segments will intersect in the center of the bowl. Recently, we have made several bowls using tangential segments, where the lines between adjacent segments define the inner diameter of the ring.
