Rose engines have been used for creating designs in the making of ceramics. The article noted below outlines some information about this for Wedgewood.
- "Josiah Wedgwood and Engine-Turned Decoration: Experimentation, Frustration and Tenacity", by John Adeney. Published in the Northern Ceramic Society's Journal No. 34 (2018) about the use of ornamental turning by Wedgwood. The SOT have a copy available on their website.
Disclaimer: eMail comments to me at OTBookOfKnowledge @ Gmail.com. The process of woodturning involves the use of tools, machinery and materials which could cause injury or be a health hazard unless proper precautions are taken, including the wearing of appropriate protective equipment.
