Entries - Hollow Forms/Vases
Hollow forms are wooden items which have been made from a single piece of wood and hollowed while turning on a lathe through a hole which is significantly smaller than the diameter of the finished work. Vases are wooden items which are at least twice as high as they are wide and have been hollowed while turning on a lathe. Hollow forms and vases may be decorated with other materials.
