Just to stifle the voices declaring that flatlanders like myself have no depth or spinny creativity, here is a vase I turned about 20 years ago as a present for an in-law. Not up to snuff with most all of the creations displayed here, but round none-the-less.
(Larry, don't worry. I have no intention of flirting with the vortex again. Just wanted to show that there is hope for others like Allen. He might yet 'turn' away from the dark side and seek the light.)
