Beautiful finish…...the color and shine you achieved on this one really reminds me of a “tiger eye” stone.

You’re right. Once you mentioned it, I could see that it does look like Tiger’s Eye stone. I have a large chunk of it about the size of the palm of the hand, about 2 inches thick, and went and looked at it to confirm it.

This is truly beautiful. I love the smoothness, the polish, the grain. The classical shape. I have the same shape in a large, undecorated white porcelain and have never tired of it in about 30 years. You can’t go wrong with it.
I really love these vessels you are turning out. You make them look flawless. Are they for sale?

Hi Trifern,
I don’t remember whether I have ever responded to your beautiful work. Just to remind you that I look at it every time you post a picture. Please, even though I remain silent, remember that I always look at your work with a wee bit of envy, and a huge measure of admiration.
