WIP Vase with handle

It has been slow going on this project. Not a good choice for my second project, the pieces are tiny, hard to fit. I am worried that I am not doing it right, the spacing is hard to get right. I keep running out of the purple, and having to order more, and wait for it to come.

I am thinking of grouting with a dark gray. Still not sure what I will do with the handle and rim.

WOW that is lovely!! Just love those dragonfly's . IF this is your second piece, all I can say is look out!!!

You're doing great. Can't wait to see it come together.

You could always paint the handle. Looks great so far.

I saw a two handled urn on another forum where the lady wrapped the two handles with beads and did not grout. You could use beads or rope. If you use rope, seal it and then do Rub n' Buff on it and make it look metallic. Beautiful job. Very nice.

Ha! I wrote you a note today saying how wonderful I think this piece is, and it's not here! Keep working, be patient...it's WORTH it...just beautiful!

Thanks, all, for the kind words!

I am learning a lot on this one. My other project was a table top, and working on a curved surface has been interesting and tedious. I wish I had more free time to devote to finishing it, but I will be patient!

I guess I am saving the handle for last, maybe by then I will have an idea of how to deal with it. Your ideas are very helpful, thank you.

I don't get much time to post here, but wanted to say that everyone here is so talented, and the pieces you all create are amazing.

I love those colors and your cutting skills are great!
Keep it up, this will be a beauty.
I have no ideas for the handles. Maybe it will come to you in your sleep, that's when I get my best ideas! LOL!
