Lidded Urn 56 by Winchester Woodworks
Winchester Woodworks creates this Lidded Urn. Now known for his focus on polychromatic segmented woodturning, Alan Davis’ latest series involves the use of native hardwoods, (cut from his own 10-acre NC hardwood rain forest) layered alternately, with imported exotic hardwoods. Each unique vessel is pieced from precision-cut segments, which reflect his evolving style with new color, pattern, and textural variety.

Woodworker Alan Davis spent his professional years as head of two Florida corporations. With leisure time to be filled in 1997, the retired executive revived his interest in woodcraft, dormant since teen years in Industrial Arts classes.
Largely self-taught, he works from his studio/shop in Waynesville, NC, surrounded by great stacks of logs, stumps, branches, roots, castoff cuts, rejected knotty burls, and other natural resources awaiting transformation. Bartered treasures from other craftsmen-pottery & glass-often add artistic function to his turned bowls. Another interest-motorhome travel-presents opportunities to gather unusual additions to his raw materials: Florida beach driftwood, California redwood roots, Louisiana swamp cypress and pecan, Mississippi tupelo or black gum, North Carolina dogwood and apple, and weathered South Carolina barn wood.
