Three methods of turning are in this vase. Solid segmented turning in the neck that contains 48 pieces, 2 hollowed solid pieces of origin to sandwich 324 piece section of open segmented turning. The total is 372 pieces glued together to make this 24×28 cm vase. It took me nearly a week from the start to finish in making it.
