The best thing about this course has been other people's designs.
Maybe it is easier to appreciate the beauty in something when you can see what you imagine it should look like.
I should really bring my finished piece in from the car and have a look at it in decent light. I feel a bit reluctant. I loved the smooth finish of the 'arms' before I welded the cups on. My welding was a bit crap and I'd be disappointed if I'd spoiled them.
