David ventured into a completely new direction with his vessel which he titled Blue Helix:

“After turning a 16″ tall by 10 ½” diameter hollow vessel, I bandsawed 1 3/8″ from the middle and glued it back together. I wanted the general proportions of the vessel based on the golden ratio and to have the rim curve down in front. This took me on a journey into some complex spiral segmented joinery. I chose this for strength, stability, and visual effect.”
