This UK author's designs are stylish & quirky & move beyond the traditional shapes in shops today. In this unique and comprehensive book, Chris West covers all aspects of turning these useful condiment holders and demonstrates how practical kitchen utensils can be transformed into beautiful, stylish and tactile additions to your home. 30 projects are rated in order of difficulty, from beginner, through to intermediate and advanced, the latter not solely based on the skills of the turner, but also on access to the materials or machinery required for the project. A basic level of turning is assumed, together with the availability of a chuck with compression jaws. Chris finds inspiration in many diverse objects, whether glass, metal or ceramics and creates unique and quirky designs, which move beyond the traditional shapes in retail shops today.
