What's the red color?

Just got a new batch of Bird's Eye Maple.
Check out the red grain.
Any idea what you call this?

I agree, the dark dotting thin strikes of red could be spalting.
It's one of a kind.

tc, I like leaving a foot on my bowls, but I put a little more work into them. I like to hollow out the inner portion and place some decorative rings. Remember it is inevitable that when people look at your bowls, the first thing they do is pick them up and look at the bottom. Take as much care there as you did on the top. If you don't already, get in the habit of signing, dating and writing the species on the bottom (inside your foot is a good place).

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...
