Nice and unque. It looks Dave was inspired by Melbourn Cup’s lady hats that we saw many of them a week or so ago. Hats in the air for you, Dave.

Looks like alabaster. Love the red streak. A real cattail?
As above, can you pull the camera in a bit?

The vase consists of three parts. Base, bottle and top. I first turn the two wooden parts and then glue’m together.
This way I get a vase that can be filled with water. If you’ll have a close look on the inside-out vase I posted before you’ll notice that it has a bottle inside as well.
I make’m all shapes and sizes depending on what I drank the night before ;-)
Sam, you missed by miles this time mate. I get no inspiration from women in funny hats although there are some blokes that does LOL
