It’s always interesting to me that the pieces that are my personal favorites are the least favorite-ed (such a word?) by others. This was my favorite of this style. The color is okay, very japanese to me. I particularly like the the design of this one and will do a set of these in different colors Each time when I unwrap poles I have a little critique session with myself. What worked, what didn’t, what I like, what others will like and so on. Even when I repeat a design and a colorway, no two pieces are ever really the same.
