Detailed Description

Ellsworth On Woodturning: How a Master Creates Bowls, Pots, and Vessels. Author, David Ellsworth

David Ellsworth is the grandfather of the wood art movement and Ellsworth on Woodturning is the book woodturners worldwide have been waiting for. With this first-ever book from the grandmaster of woodturning, woodworkers and artists can learn to replicate his highly evolved techniques and signature style. Step-by-step directions and crisp, absorbing photos show exactly how Ellsworth creates an open bowl, a natural-edged bowl, and an astounding hollow vessel featuring a tiny opening and coin-thin walls. In sharing his vision, Ellsworth reveals not only his techniques, but the power of the creative process - the feeling of direct engagement with the wood that develops an artist from each project to the next.

For anyone new to the lathe, Ellsworth on Woodturning provides expert tips for getting started. Intermediate and advanced turners will appreciate advice on everything from working with green wood to design to tool making and sharpening. Best of all, stunning color photographs of Ellsworth's work will inspire artists to unlock the natural beauty in wood.

"His work overturned all the deeply held traditions of functionality that had defined turning. For the first time, woodturners were seeing themselves as artists."
- Terry Martin & Kevin Wallace, New Masters of Woodturning

"A brilliant exposition of the art of woodturning by the premier writer, teacher, and practitioner of the art. It's clear complete, and superbly illustrated."
- Jane and Arthur Mason, wood art collectors
