Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

Thanks again guys, just to be very clear and avoid any misunderstanding, i made for a customer during Bernie's last days.
I love to think that he drove my hands in plaiting it

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

That is a beautiful piece, the signature mark at the bottom of the knot is wonderful. Bernie would be proud that this piece was dedicated to him.

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

That is a fine looking whip. Its nice that you dedicated it to Bernie.

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

Truly beautiful work Gio and a very fitting tribute to Bernie.  If there was anything that he was a master of, was higher plait count whips.  I hope one day I could do half as fine work as you do.

Here's wishing you find time for the things you want to do, and for the things you need to do.
We see ourselves in our children and hope for a better future.

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

A beautiful tribute to a true craftsman. Wonderful work Gio. I hope one day to order such a piece from you.

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

Bernie is smiling over this piece Gio. That is a magnificent 20 plait. I agree with Pokkis, this is my favorite whip coming from your hands. Thanks for sharing this masterpiece.

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

Very elegant and beautiful work, Gio!  I especially love the sleek grace of the stock whip, and the belt is very cool, stylish indeed!
The center of the heel knot on the nylon bullwhip showing the plaiting underneath-awesome!
Well done, Well done!

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

My husband would love that belt!  It is so pretty.  I think out of all of them is your paracord whip that caught my eye.  Gio!  I can't recall you doing a paracord whip before.  Am I right?  I LOVE the colors.  It is really nice.  These are the colors I had envisioned my Victorian-themed whip to be.  Isn't it so cool how so many of you make the same thing, but they are so distinct.  like paintings?  I am, as usual, in awe.  Beautiful work Gio.

If you fall, I'll be there.

Re: This is the Gallery of Giovanni Celeste

Really really awesome work Gio, the arrow pattern on the bullwhip caught my eye. The belt looks really cool too.
