So you're thinking a wider but shorter base that would encompass more of the landcape? I'd thought at one point of adding the bridge, but that meant the base would be so big as to dwarf the house.

Thanks for the idea of the AIA bookstores....brilliant suggestion.

I wouldn't make the base encompass more of the site, myself. I showed the Jester models just to illustrate a neat crisp cylindrical element.

Deke: I think the amount of site around the house sculpture is fine as is...like SDR, my suggestions were related to the detailing of the base's edge or face.

Thanks to everyone for their comments...and thanks to those who ordered a paperweight! I got them in the mail yesterday. I'm working on some additional casting materials (pewter and opal colors) and refining the base as well. I'll post more photos when the .1 version is done.

Obviously, I won't be able to get another batch done in time for Christmas, but I'll have more shortly thereafter.

D-construction. Ha ha.
