Ultimately my first casting came out the best. My last one had better techniques but some isolated mistakes that prevented it from being the better one. Pictured below is the piece fully sanded and finished. If given the chance to do this project again I would've considered the working mediums more in my design. As mention in project 2, the handle's shape did not allow the clay to be fully smoothed on all sides and those uneven finished transferred on to the final parts. The handle, however, did have a very nice feel to it and was comfortable to hold in my hand in the cupped position it was designed for. The ridges themselves transferred very smoothly and were almost pleasing to run my fingers over. Ultimately I found myself holding and fiddling with my finished parts a lot through this project and liked having it in my hands, I consider this to be the mark of a succesful ergonomic grip.
