Corinthian order, Step #2

Taking one of the pots and adding little flanges in a ring around the pot, then beginning to carve.

This being the first attempt I am sticking to a fairly traditional interpretation of the corinthian capital. Here I have roughed out the acanthus leaves of the first two tiers of the standard pattern.

One problem I have encountered so far is making sure the leaves are rising straight up. given a certain right handed bias, they have all tended to sway slightly to the left… will be breaking out the plumb bob (or equivalent) for the next one…

Continuing from #step 1
