This beautiful volume from Richard Raffan is dedicated to the art of creating aesthetic forms in your turned bowls.
More about design than about technique, the book displays a wide
range of bowls -- by a host of experienced turners -- with analysis
that will help you create more artful bowls with a sense of balance and
proportion. As you flip through the pages, you'll discover how the
subtle form and shape of a well-turned bowl is one that's also a
delight to hold and use.
