In this inspiring book, Derek Hayes investigates the process andpractice of design in woodturning. Design is rarely a priority forthe beginner woodturner and most turners in their early work beginby concentrating on technique rather than shape or form, which canprove counter-productive. While aiming to instill confidence inappreciating, criticising and selecting sources of inspiration,Derek doesn?t tell you what is good or bad, but rather questionswhy we may find one turning attractive and another ugly. He looksclosely at design elements, sketching, proportion, pattern, openforms, closed forms, the foot, the rim, using wood, decoration andcolour; with instructive diagrams and photographs that will guidethe reader to a better understanding of design. Readers areencouraged to question and fine-tune this understanding andexperiment with ways of applying the approaches of other designersto their own work. Where inspiration is found is not important, buthow we transform what is seen into something which is definitelyour own is what matters. Each chapter starts with a photographicexample of what Derek sees as good design in a medium other thanwoodturning. The pieces are not ?deconstructed? to justify hischoice, but are there to serve as a reminder to the turner, asDavid Ellsworth has said, ? look for design choices withcritical awareness?.
