Vortex Shapes

The Challenge

We want to see your pieces with a votrex like shape as a prominent theme.

A vortex is defined as:

a whirling mass of water, esp. one in which a force of suction operates, as a whirlpool.
a whirling mass of air, esp. one in the form of a visible column or spiral, as a tornado.
a whirling mass of fire, flame, etc.

Any subject can be submitted, as long as a vortex shape is present and prominent within the piece.
