    Design cast iron kettle

    Made for a friend, about 3 hours.
    Still enjoy playing with the lovely 'wave.

    Simple setup, HDR lighting with a fake globe background.
    Conductor for the cast iron, dielectric for the glass, delta for the floor.
    Single area light.

    Looks pretty good to me. Perhaps the spout would work easier though as a sideways pour with that long of a handle, if that is indeed the way it works.

    That's what I mainly seem to use LW for is to noodle around with ideas that I can more quickly 'spain by modeling, but probably get a bit maniacal trying to sketch. A lot of what iffing time spent with it for sure.

    Ha yeah... I added the handle after my friend left with the design drawings... it probably should be on the side, good catch!

    Iffing is great though. Nice hobby these days haha.
