Spalted beech root

It's been hard to turn this beech root.
there were wedged several stones like chalk, and I had to sharpen tthe 3/4 bowl gouge so many times, even aggressively too.
the form at the end is questionable, very heavy
especially the support foot, which is too large.
in this case my turning skills have been placed by the wood and how I could keep it spinning on the lathe.
The spalted is gorgeous

From Aan Apricot-tree a spalted bowl

It was a very old tree, with a root on a pit,
too dangerous to stay in the garden of an old villa, which is now a library-museum.
Inside this apricot-tree an anthill party.
