    Here's a few examples of ring grains from Ashton:

    This one is a simple but clear ring grain...

    The two below show what is classic ring grain (right) and what is blast but not ring grain (left).

    While the pipe on the left is a nicely grained blast, I would define ring grain as creating rings around the pipe going up the bowl...

    These are all Mark Tinsky's work... He doesn't do his own blasting, he sends it out:

    and two sides of the same pipe (another rhodesian blast, separate from the rhodesian above, they were purchased as a matched set):
