Lovely little turning. I bet you were worried it might disenigrate while hollowing it out.

Love the shape of the vessel, color, grain are fantastic, but not sure of the finial, takes my attention away from the main aspect.

I like it a lot. Nice job. I may have gone with a high gloss finish instead. Then again I may have regretted that decision after the fact because it looks good the way it is.

Very nice! I need to get back into some turning again. Perhaps a few (dozen?) years practice and I can post something like this…
