You've had the knack ever since day one it seems. That segmented work is very clean and graceful, and your creativity with hand mirrors was in full bloom even then.
I wish I had some evidence of my first pieces, but I know for a fact that they weren't anywhere near your level of accomplishment. I got my first lathe -- a little Delta Rockwell 12 x 36 benchtop model -- and my first set of turning tools (Craftsman) for my 10th birthday, and I learned to turn from a couple Delta books and some old Deltagrams that had been passed down from my grandfather. It wasn't until David Ellsworth moved into our neighborhood, around 1980, that I started to turn seriously and learned to use bowl gouges. As much as I love turning, I regret that I have been too preoccupied over the years to spend more time exploring and mastering the craft. Maybe in my dotage...
