You don't want to create partitions, do you?

Just create an mapping and use it.  If you need another, create another.  Need to remove one, just remove it.

Also, I'm assuming you want to use device-mapper.  If you want persistent devices (ones that stick around after a reboot), you may wish to use LVM.
