Hello to all my fellow turners. My name is Terry Reeves from the state of Illinois. I started segmented woodturning in 2013. I knew I had finally discovered what I was meant to do. My inspiration came from Ray Allen, who was a real master segmented woodturning. The elegant forms and intricate designs presented me with the challenge I needed to recreate their everlasting beauty in wood. I believe that I have captured through trial and error, the same satisfaction in viewing a completed piece as those who have inspired me. I was so excited to win this year 1st place at the Illinois State Fair Fine Arts & Craft show in my division. Looking forward in meeting everyone in October.
