I took a lump of cherry, and got started, and the shape just sort of happened. It seemed to say “oil lamp” and that’s what it became. I used black and red dyes on the exterior, and decided to gild the interior to enhance the lamp effect.

Great turming. The color is beautifull and the gilding really makes the light shine.

Keep it up.
