This is my first, and so far only, attempt at an open segmented vessel. Was fun to do but a little stressful. The whole time I was turning I was just waiting for that lathe tool to catch one of the open segs and ruin the vessel. A little white knuckle turning going on here as you can imagine. Very interesting to do and I will likely try it again but with a better design.

Made of Chinese Elm, Padauk and Birch. Finished with wipe-on poly and paste wax.

Thanks for viewing.

Comments and suggestions welcome.

Very cool piece you created there. Like the lathe and what people come up with from it.
