The tall glass vase was easy to turn over and needed a stabilizer and i came with this idea. I used open segmented turning method of 240 pieces. The timber is unknown and given to me as package of long and thin strip, by a friend who said ” I know you can make something out of this”. After nearly one year, I made this thing.
NOTE: I wished to send more pictures, but they were rejected with a note that I could send only 5mb photo. It happened for the first time on L J.
