I actually made 4 vessels with a similar pattern. These are a tribute to the late Ray Allen. Please enjoy.

Absolutely stunniing execution there Bill.:clap::clap::clap::clap:

I'm not normally big fan of segmented turnings but that could sit on my table any day!!:)

I'm usually just a looker who doesn't make any comments but that is a spectacular turning.

Thanks so much. That wood is some curly Maple I found in the stack of regular cabinet grade Maple at a wood supplier here in Tucson. I found 3 pieces of that. A lucky score for sure.

Looking to get back into some segmented projects shortly after a long hiatus, Bill.

That spectacular piece is just the impetus I need, although maybe a step too far for me at this point. I have one of Ray Allen's books and can see the influence & inspiration there.

What are the dark bands, by the way?
