I did one more segmented vase to work on form and feature rings. This is my first completed piece with the zig-zag ring. The zig-zag is fun to do. Hopefully in time and practice I can get better at them.

The vase is red oak and walnut, 5” tall, 3.5” major diameter, 2.25 base diameter, 145 pieces.

The second picture is of the 3 recent vases together.

Time to switch to some other woods and styles.

Fantastic design, and a classic ovoid shape! Red oak and walnut is an unbeatable combination. Thanks for posting!

Your segmented turnings look very good. The most important part of any of these designs are the form of the vessel. You have made some very nice shaped vases. well done.
