This woodturning project, with a little imagination, is telling a short love story. Two lovers were enjoying their dinner and wine when a sudden dispute erupted between them. One of them kicked the goblet and turned it over and the wine went everywhere, and left without looking back. What a shame!

OBSERVE the last drops of wine inside the turned over goblet while the other goblet was half full.

Good turning Sam, most unusual. Looks like a fun project.

Nice one. It does sorta tell a story all by itself.

Ahhh, but the story doesn’t say whether it was “him” or “her” that lost their temper ;)

I like the piece Sam. Gives me a feel of a still life done in the early 20th century. I like how both goblets are different, a non-matching pair. Representing the fact that the couple is un-matched perhaps? Or maybe it conveys a moment of a poor couple’s attempt at a higher society evening. Nice goblets but a mixed set, a cheaper wine, which leads more quickly to drunkenness. The wine is slugged by one while another is sipped.

Obviously the piece is inspiring much thought.

You could have called it “Sudden Passion”, with the idea being that they were suddenly overcome with desire, and spilled a glass in their rush to the bedroom. :-)

Nice work!

In my house it would be “Oh, crap! One of the kids just fell down the stairs. So much for our nice time together.”

I like the whole wood, visual, story, art, concept. Very smart and creative.

This is quite imaginative! Hat’s off! Even the story! I certainly saved a copy of this picture.

Maybe the wine wasn’t very good?!?
