Great, the design reminds me of designs that are on some of the Mata Ortiz that we saw in Santa Fe is summer. I can’t imagine how much time and patience it took.

Beautiful piece Tom.
You are obviously not just another pretty marquetry box maker.
I like this a lot.

Very nicely done! How many hours did you put into this piece?

Woodworking wise, this is really cool and very nicely done.

Personally, kinda looks like a snake. I have an issue with anything that reminds me of snakes :-)

Hello

This the most wonderful open segment vase I have ever seen

How many time for the different step : cutting piece? gluing piece ? turning?

Thanks for sharing

now this is a different shape for a segmentation..I really like the gentle swoop! The most per row I have ever done was 36, and that was hard enough!

Super nice and something you should be real proud of. Some day I may be able to make something like this but from what I see its a long ways off for me.
Thanks for sharing such a beautiful work of art.
