Hi, I am new to Solidworks and looking for your help with Contours and Offsets.

How would you offset with a constant variation in thickness of a part. For example you have a Vase with an opening at the top and a belly then the bottom. I will show you a snip it soon. So its mouth is 1/8th thick, then as you go to the bottom passing the belly it increase to 3/8th. I need to cut this but not sure how to cut my block of Vase to match these thickness requirements because the thickness is changing AND THE CONTOURS change as well.
