Here is the finished piece, "Enlightenment". It's catalog number is 769. This number is mostly just for my records. Since I recycle titles rather than trying to come up with a completely new one for every piece I include the catalog numbers in the title. That way I can readily distinguish one piece from another with essentially the same title. So the official title of this vessel is "Enlightenment #769".
This piece was made through traditional angle raising techniques, and further embellished with chasing techniques. It's approximate size is 3.25" x 3" x 3".
