Another good reference tool
I have recently tried turning segmented vessels and I am always looking for interesting patterns. This book by Ralph Buckland is obviously focused on lamps but I found some of the pattern designs interesting and potentially useful for future projects. Not all of his designs are "my style" but I will use the book as a reference tool and undoubtably incorporate some of his ideas into future work.
