Luce Artist Biography

Ray Allen worked as a carpenter for thirty years before learning to turn wood. He discovered segmented turning in 1988, a method that incorporates many different pieces of wood into a single turned form. His vessels often include more than three thousand individual pieces of wood and required complex construction before being placed on the lathe. Allen based his intricate and geometric designs on Southwest Indian, prehistoric, and modern pottery.
