This is a few more of these crazy shapes I am playing with,
Pic 1 is a 6 branch streptohedon
Pic 2 & 3 are a Conicon
Pic 4 is a Femisphere
Pic 5 is a Pentagon
And #6 is a small collection of not quite getting it right :). called “mishaps”. This one probably give you a good idea of how they work
I hope you can figure them out, if you put them on a table they are inclined to “walk” about, sort of rock n roll

I can imagine these on a much larger scale sitting in a modern studio gallery in New York. Thanks also for sharing some new shape names I had forgotten existed. I still think the first shape should be called “fortune cookie”. :)

Pete, Your amaze me with your skill on the lathe and ingenious ways you find to apply it. Well done! These look like they would make really nice ornament on the Christmas tree or ceiling fan chain pulls.

These are a little mind bending Pete.
I can see how the accuracy is essential.
Great exercises for the turner.
