Thanks for sharing.
Not sure how the OP did it, but I do it by turning on a lathe. The reason I am commenting is that I do it a little differently than most people would think.
I turn the inside first on the lathe. In my case I use a home made deep hollowing rig and a laser light to control wall thickness and depth.
Then on the rotary axis I turn a short "spud" that fits snugly inside the piece and use a tailstock to keep it from falling off. To get a tight fit on the spud, I use paper towel. By using a spud it is possible to turn past the upper lip on the vessel. Using jaws to do this type of thing gets to be problematic at best.
A really fun thing to do is use a forstner bit to "turn" the inside of small boxes and then put them on the rotary using the method above.
