Following my discussion with Mike Miller, I thought I could reveal some 
current WIP I am slowly working on (time permitting) for the last couple 
of months.

I am using Silo to model a 5000 years old (reconstructed) Sumerian vase, 
including the uv-mapped designs, which are done in Gimp. The vase model 
is processed through Poseray to POV-Ray geometry and material files.

The first modelling stage concerns an essentially "brand-new" vase which 
I intend, through successive further stages later on, to "erode" and 
"degrade" gradually to something well-worn and -used, to possibly discarded.

Below are two different scenes including the vase at its current state. 
One is a "three-point studio lighted" scene (which follows its own 
development btw); the other is an exclusively hdr-lighted scene.

Still much to do obviously! :-)

Very nice. Great job on the mapping. looks authentic.

A beautiful vase, very exotic-looking. Nice!

I have not modeled much of anything lately; too wrapped up in experiments of
one kind or another. It's always inspiring to see what you come up with.

(is this what the "green giant" found, behind the mountains ?  ;-))

Too kind. We shall see how it goes... ;-|

This is only preliminary, and somehow too "contemporary" in some of its 
aspects, but it is a start, and I am learning a lot about how to do 
pigment_patterns right for instance.

Well... I have no idea as he refuses to communicate with me... ;-)

Mike, Kenneth, thanks indeed.

I have taken the opportunity to explore more in details the directives 
from Clipka to correctly use the finish code in version 3.7 and higher. 
Very enlightening indeed. I shall come back on this later on.

Two different views of the vase with the panels now finished. The 
decoration is a faithful copy of the originals.

This is a reproduction of the restored frieze I used as example for my 
own "painting".

I like the addition of the cracks and dents to start making it look aged.  Was
this done in your modeling system, or added in in POV afterwards?

Thanks Chris. The cracks/dents were added in POV as a normal to the 
reddish slipware. The decorations have a different normal but that is 
still not final. In a final stage I might add the normals to the model 
itself; Poseray is very well-suited for that.
