Wide Mouth Four Footed Erlenmeyer Hackberry Flask

This green Hackberry turning has four carved feet and a wide natural edge. There are four piths in this piece.
This Erlenmyer flask is 4" at its tallest and 7 1/4" at its widest. The wall is relatively thin at 3/16".
Polished with the Beall buffing system and Howard's Feed and Wax.
Here are some more pictures of the Wide Mouth Four Footed Erlenmeyer Hackberry Flask.

and here you can see how this thin walled vessel 3/16" quickly warped after turning. I also immersed it in silicon beads for a few hours in the Texas heat.
