I keep trying to make a nice goblet

I find it hard to make the feet nice, this one turned out more random shaped.

Great start to the month.

Marcel ... beautiful as always.

Adam ... nice goblet ... I like the foot ... it looks like waves.

Working to make Spring themed beads ... really happy how this came out ... next time it needs sparkle added.

Here's my first contribution to a Show & Tell thread:




(Sorry if the images are too large, I wasn't sure...)

The eye pendant was my first attempt at something of that kind, and my first iris cane.
Looking forward to seeing more of everyone's stuff.
I love the Nebula Bear!
Nice colors, everyone.
Martha

I thought I would share. I don't do much boro, just some pendants once in a while, but I decided to try some beads.

very nice collaboration with your Dad Marcel. I enjoy working with my dad too he is not an artist but we work in the garden together and other outside projects he always give me the impression that I can do anything and learn anything if I put my mind to it. A very great man and an awesome Dad.

are the lips being crooked due to the stem being off center? like when you spin it out, it's not "true"?

i've messed around with goblets a bit (i'm nowhere ready to make stuff like that, but i can't help myself) and every time i make one, the rim/lip gets wonky. i can only assume it's due to my stem being off center, which is due to my hands shaking lol.

Yeah I guess it takes a little practice to put the stem right in the center, I haven't really managed that yet anyone got any advice?

The lips turns wonky when I flare it open so yes it might be partially because the stem is not centered, but it might be my fault too.
I haven't made that many goblets yet, this is my seventh one.
