I am a wood artist focused on the shape, color, and design of the vessel. The primary technique I use is called "segmented" turning. This is a process of precisely cutting and assembling small pieces of wood, often 3 or more species, and turning them to a final shape on the wood lathe. The use of this technique allows me great flexibility in designing shapes that would be extremely difficult or impossible to create from solid wood.
My goal is to generate the flowing feeling of glass in the organic medium of wood. Pieces are typically finished in lacquer. Often I use dyes in the lacquer to create a rainbow of color, not generally associated with wood.
