It’s taken weeks (not continuously) but I’ve finally finished engraving my big blue vase. This huge vase (29cm tall) was blown by Carl Nordbruch some time ago. I haven’t met him but bought the vase from a friend of mine. It’s got pale then dark blue overlays so I could engrave through the layers to show the colours.
The story is a Welsh legend but basically a wife is magically created from flowers by a magician for his nephew. Sadly she was not impressed by the man she was made to marry and she was unfaithful. She and her lover plotted to kill her husband and she was punished by the magician by being turned into an owl.
