How do you turn items that thin? especially the base, I am assuming it is one piece! Just looking at the picture I would be hesitant in picking it up, never mind trying to turn it on a lathe! unbelievable :lol:
This piece looks beautifully balanced to me and I love the way the body almost appears to float above the base. (Are they one piece or joined?). I find the lid/finial a little fussy, but admire the craftsmanship that went in to making it. Overall a very pleasing piece.
Harlequin. Well done. I will be the first to critisize. The foot a tad or two smaller in diameter. The finial bulb section also a little thinner.
The mock ivory piece to thick. All the above my opinion and given with the best intensions Regards Roger C
