Conquered it, finally

Hi! I have a tendency to design things that are a bit tricky to make, keeping myself on my toes! The latest is a commission, a Welsh slate bowl which will feature a circular inscription, raised horse chestnut leaf and conker. The last conker fell apart in the making, due to a rather weak layer in the slate, but today I finally finished the second one, phew. It will be attached with a stainless steel dowel. When the lettering is cut and the job finished I’ll post more pictures.

    Have you ever seen a conker in two parts? I thought that was only the sweet chestnut, Castanea sativa.
