„Chalice Fantasy“

from the gallery of Patricia Howitt

One can look into this chalice and imagine all kinds of things: knights in armor, knights errant, expeditions to rescue fair maidens, paths leading into forest deeps where goodness knows what dragons may be lurking and kings’ ransoms may hang in the balance...

As I was working on this, the quote from Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ came to mind: “We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep”.

The sword hilt comes from a scan I have of one of my late father’s low relief heraldic sculptures – so this is a bit of a family affair. It’s great to be able to use it.
