Inside Out.

Hi everyone, ive got to the point now on the commissioned piece where the clues as to what it will eventually be are getting easier to decipher, before i work on anymore of the exterior of this piece i need to complete the interior! all will become clearer in possibly my next post but first i need to make quite a few of the glass vials in the following photograph.

                                                     (Image taken from google search)
Well i'm sure now that a little more has become apparent especially to Harry Potter fans as to what it could possibly be?

Ive managed to make around fifty of these tiny glass vials so far but i have quite a few more still to go, a tedious task but hopefully well worth the effort once they're done i put a tiny spot of gilding size on the tip of this match to balance this one on so you can see the scale.
Stay tuned for further progress!!
Have a great week everyone  Tony.

  2. Hi tony, the vials look brilliant. I definitely guessed it right after the last post, but then I am a huge Harry Potter fan. Can't wait to see it finished.

  5. If you keep on with the Harry Potter themed items, you'll have built the whole set before very long ;0P
    Looking forward to seeing how it looks when you're done =0)

  7. I don't think tedious covers it, 50 to make! They are so perfectly and exquisitely made and without the matchstick for scale, you'd never know it wasn't real life scale. Truly mesmerising work, methinks you're a bit of a wizard master creator!

  8. Haha, you are seriously 'crazy' Tony, 50 of those already and still need more, seems quite tedious indeed.. It looks great though, do I understand correctly that it's real glass? I'm getting more curious about what i will all be, can't wait to see what you're making!

  10. Clearly a man of many talents! I'm not a Harry Potter follower so your project will come as a complete surprise to me but I'm really curious to find out what it is.
