Segmented Wood Turnings are constructed from carefully cut pieces of wood that are glued into rings. The woodturner is able to manipulate the pieces of wood to produce a mosaic of contrasting color and limitless form bound only by the artist’s creativity.
Natural Wood Turnings are created from a solid piece of wood. The inimitable properties embodied in this abundant medium ultimately reveal an expression of the wood, the artist, and our creator.
