A couple of hollow form vessels and a goblet.

The wood is mostly Port Orford cedar (wonderfully fragrant) with brown ebony and maple. They were then stained, gilded and then lacquered.

I included a picture of what happens with a momentary lapse in concentration when hollowing.

Beautiful work as always and a great use of contrasting finishes that work so well together. I also like the high gloss look which I think is very appropriate for those pieces you have used it on.
