Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Ray Allen was a master of segmented bowl turning who favored Southwest Indian Motifs in his designs. He died in 2000. but not before laying the groundwork (with Nish) for this interesting guide to his favorite pasttime.
You might want to start in the middle of this book, where a 56-page gallery of Allen's finished work could inspire you to try your hand at this intricate craft. Then go back to the beginning to get the lowdown on tools and equipment you'll need, how to formulate and cut your segments, and how to draw up a blueprint for your own design.
next, work through the photo-illustrated 95-step process to create your own vessel, which involves some advanced turning techniques.
There are 11 additional plans for alternate designs. The softcover book sells for $25.95 and is 137 pages long. www.FoxChapelPublishing.com
