new oak vase/vessels

New oak vase/vessels

Here are two oak vase/vessels that I have finished recently.
I'm not quite sure what to call them as to me a vase is a practical item which can be used for flowers, which these cannot, but when I hear the word vessel I think of big ships like the titanic!!

These are turned from green/wet wood to a wall thickness of about 4 or 5 mm then allowed to dry and distort for a couple of weeks in my home then I mark out the design I want with a pencil and then cut and shape them using a tenon saw,rasps and sanding drums.
I then apply an oil finish.
