    Judge #1- I have a soft spot for work that could be considered “off-balanced” and this piece was exactly that in the best way!

    Judge #9 Comments- This is a great example of art( vs. craft) with the openings clearly not expected to retain liquid as a goblet should. This piece is a showcase and visual treat for any admirer of fine art and craftsmanship.

    Judge #13 Comments – I am impressed by the skill and careful patience that went into creating this sculptural goblet. Knowing that is a big part of any viewer’s pleasure in viewing it. It looks like it was carved from a single piece of wood. The exposure of the textures and grains of the wood is well done.

  • Not a judge – but I also really enjoyed this piece! The way you incorporated the natural shape and texture of the wood into the final result was beautifully done.
