I always contemplated those over-decorated chalices(and other ritual items) that are sold here and there with mistrust, this piece is just perfect for me
In my opinion ritual items shall reflect their owners personality, but I often thought about it, how people are who use over-decorated and only for ornament items.
For example swords. I see online shops offering them made of steel(?) that is so weak, that I can break them even by hand (and I'm not a muscular one), and moreover they look like taken from another "fantasy" TV-series.
As I started "collecting" my ritual items (still in progress) I thought, a sword has to be like my will, because it represents it. Therefore I went to a forger(black-smith?) who makes medieval swords and daggers of real steel and let him just make one for me, and after it was ready, I let him make also a dagger.
But I witter again
What I wanted to say: I am more than happy to soon have a chalice made by you.
