Joe Seltzer brought in some of Bill Smith’s iconic open segmented pieces. Bill was recently given the Segmented Woodturners Lifetime Achievement Award, which Joe accepted on Bill’s behalf.
Joe brought in a few other items as well, including 3 pieces by Ray Feltz, a vortex bowl by Hal Metlitzky, a segmented bowl by Robert Beaupre, and a segmented vortex vessel by John Manura and two pieces by Jim Rogers. That little one (in the magnifier case and shown alone in the last frame) is a 3D printed vessel made to look like a segmented vessel.
Another amazing piece Joe brought along was a very open segmented piece by Robin Costelle.
We know Joe likes to make small turnings to give out at meetings, but he made a really small vessel- just to show us he could.
