Congratulations to you and to Kheir. Looks like an interesting competition.

"stop and change"? by this do you mean stop working on the forge they were working on and let someone else forge, so a 3 hour limit on what was forged. or after 3 hours they were to go onto another project that another smith worked on. A collaborative effort. from the math it seems as if each had their own project.

Which piece is Kheir's in the gallery? For some reason I'm thinking it is the railing section. IMG_4208.JPG

And how were the leaves and stems attached in this rose? I can't quite see the detail IMG_4189.JPG
