In case you're wondering, there's a feather at the top of the vessel. It isn't permanently attached in case the future owner of this piece wants to remove it. I was rather amazed at how well it picks up the pattern I put into the top part of the vessel, that was not at all intentional.
I will leave you with my finished work of the day - and perhaps I'll have another WIP to show you later this week. For now, have a happy and creative day!
