Tulip Vases.

I started to make the Tulip Vases about five years ago, I had made Crocus Vases when I was doing a project for my block release during my apprenticeship so they are not exactly new but I like them and so thankfully do our customers. I have to throw the pot very thin and evenly sectioned. Then mark out the three cut points.

After this I mark the wall of the pot with an old lid.

Making the cuts.

The edges angled.

Cut down the side to add to the shape.

I've started to angle the top out the way to make them look more natural.

These are some made without the angle out the way.

But you get the drift?
