Last spring I started piercing a thin boxelder vase according to the vision in my head of a relatively minor pierced area. The result didn't look anything like my vision.
You can't erase bad piercings and I didn't want to put it into the firewood box so I set it aside.
This year I came up with the idea of cutting out the bad parts and making a spiral piercing. Worked out not too bad.
I don't have a hollowing system so I had to make the thin vase in two sections, which was rather ticklish. I cleaned up the join as best I could but it's still visible on the inside. Other than that I'm happy with it.
I'm posting several pictures because it looks quite different from every direction.
