Ugly duckling by LaughingTree Ugly duckling by LaughingTree
*Edit* Sorry for the repost... But I updated the image. This one has much better contrast.*

This piece is a lot more complex that it looks. It looked really bad when I was finished with it, so I cut off the top at an angle, polished it, and then added a battuto technique to the side.

It's a three hour piece. A cane pickup incalmo switch axis... After I battutoed the sides and cut the top it looked much MUCH better. I quite like it now!

It's about 16" tall

Ugly duckling by ~LaughingTree is a wonderful example of elegant form and design in a supercooled liquid. ( Featured by sapphiretiger )
