Carving on Turning

Book - 1995
Rate this:
This handsome book, by talented wordworker and teacher Chris Pye, provides background and introduction to two truly disparate, yet entirely complementary, crafts: carving and turning. Discover how simple decorative marks, through to advanced carving and shaping techniques, can enhance your turned objects and add an element of artistry. Begin with a beautiful sun bowl and a wheat-ear breadboard. Make a vase using low relief, or a dolphin mirror with pierced relief and practice shaping skills while working on a mortar and pestle. 12 projects, arranged by difficulty, introduce more and more skills and provide progressive lessons in technique; all accompanied with friendly text, illustrations and photographs. Watch as both your woodworking pleasure and scope grow before your eyes!
