Peach colored Alabaster Stone. Turned to 1/4 inch side walls. Top is scrap wood that I tried to turn to the shape of the National Flower of Scotland, Bull Thistle. With a light under or above it just glows.

This is natural stone from New Mexico. It is fun to turn and just the dirtiest thing you will ever turn. Love the finished pieces. If they Poo all the Alabaster that I put up I will stop. I only have two more with much more wood to follow. Thanks for all the comments

Very nice vessel Ron. Even though I’m a woodworker, I do have a great fondness for alabaster. The thistle like top looks great too.
