This was my first attempt at a vase. I was going to hollow it all the way down but I liked some of the spalting that would have gone away if I had hoped further down. I also liked the goblet type of feel that it has. This is 11 inches tall.

Nice piece! Sometimes you just have to let the wood tell you what to make.
