Turning Archive 2005

I am in the progress of turning my first hollow vessel and have a question. I have the top half of a 5" deep and wide cherry vessel and am stuck about getting deeper into it. I predrilled about half way down with a 1" forstner bit and have hollowed down that deep. Is there a tool that I can use to hollow deeper? I don't think I can get any deeper with my forstner bits. The hollowing tools I have are a Sorby Multi-tip Shear Scraper, Sorby mini swan-neck hollowing tool, and Crown 80 degree hollowing scraper.
Any tips and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated as I am at a loss for what to do next.
Thanks in advance.
