  • Gothic style chalice.

    I did this one a few days ago. I am trying to make as many different styles as I can and get a good range of goblets together. This one is in oak, ebonized, textured and gilded. It stands 10" tall.. Fully usable. Is this a style that is worth pursuing?

    Apologies for the lousy photo, need to get some good ones for the shop.

    I think it looks great. Would do no harm to do a few and see how they sell. You could even further develop with a brass twist around the base. Look at maybe posting a picture on an enactment site, see if they like it, see what their response is, may bring in some commisions that way.

      Thanks Sunlion. I do some with brass inserts already and am sorting out a way to use pewter. I( have some ideas but want to do things that are a bit different to the run of the mill stuff you tend to see. The trick is to find ways of making these things economically. I have access to a re-enactment forum thanks to Annie but have yet to actually go active on it.

          Go theee a re enacting!

          I love it .... but that's exactly what I always say. I do love the way the guilding brings out the grain.

              Love the style .Personally I find that people are attracted to the fact of something being Oak so don't think the ebonizing /gilding is needed.

                  Thanks everyone:
                  Pat: I do a lot of goblets in oak both green and dried leaving it uncoloured. Oak and ash however lend themselves to this type of texturing and personally as long as you can see the grain I am not averse to colouring or texturing. On this one the inside and the underside of the foot are left uncoulored so the natural oak can still be seen.
