4 3/4" tall, 7 1/2" wide (3 1/4" at the base), 2" opening, 1/4" thickness, weight 10 oz.
This piece was created from a gnarly block of nicely Box Elder burl.  Some of the natural shape was allowed to come through to the finished piece.  I chose to paint the interior a flat black to accentuate the natural voids.  The base, which is also painted black, lifts the piece up, just enough to give it a more airy feel.  Finished with a wipe-on polyurethane, buffed to a satin shine.
