I love the texture of both the bottom part and the handles. The contrast is nice but I wish the handles were more cohesive to the entire piece. They seem to float a little, and the bottom texture feels like an afterthought - it doesn't really carry through the rest of the piece. Perhaps texture on the lid as well? The color gradient is nice as well, whether or not it was intended. Shows a lovely progression from your previous works.
Agree that the handles do not fit the composition very well. The texture was planned even before the pot was thrown and the lid is textured to match the base...the photograph does not capture the top very well.
Interesting. I love the motifs, and the whole thing has a "Thai temple" look to it. But I'm not *entirely* sure about the two handles; they feel tacked on, and they really stand out compared to the more smoother vessel.
This is also an instant for me. The only thing I don't like are those two horn-shaped things on the sides. They don't seem to fit the whole picture, and look like as if they were put on later. I must emphasize: grand piece of art alltogether!!
