Apologies for the horrid lighting, I may try again later with a work light.
Anyway trying a few new things here so we'll see where this goes. The goblet on the left was the "prototype" (loml actually likes it better which I suppose good as its the one we're keeping). The one on the right is a much belated wedding gift (wedding was in October) for a friend that is made from some walnut I cut from his property.
The symbolism of the bulb type flower (spring, new beginnings) and the interlocked rings is perhaps overdone but were things I wanted to try anyway
- The base on the walnut one is a bit small for the flower/bowl size.
- Rings and stems could be thinner/lighter, especially the stem on the walnut piece.
- More an observation, but the detailing on the base of the lighter colored one was a total waste of time and just made it painful to sand/finish.
