Thick Oak Vase

Continuing with my fascination with burr oak, I turned this thick and heavy oak vase recently. It is about 9 inches tall and just over 6" at its widest. The interior was just drilled out on the lathe with a 2" forstner bit. I'm looking for a tall 2" glass vase to insert into it so fresh flowers can be used in it. During the drying process of this piece quite a few cracks have formed adding to to it in my opinion. I like the simple form but I think the next one will have more of a curve towards the bottom.
