Grinding Wheel Color

Japanese Bowls - A Western Perspective: An Exhibit
by Gallery of Wood Art

I often like to get inspiration by looking at the creativity of my fellow woodturners. This link will take you to the exhibit book for Japanese Bowls - A Western Perspective which was featured at the 2007 Symposium in Portland, Oregon. The bowls shown in this exhibit really get my thoughts going on how I might make something new and exciting.
