Nobody cares if it's not your type of turning. If you can't appreciate somebody's art work then just keep quite.


EVERYONE is entitled to their opinion here. We do not censor what people write.
As for Comments & Critiques. (C&C)
If someone says "it's not my cup of tea" or a similar sentiment, then it's up to the artist to interpret whether the critique is valid or just a negative comment without merit.
If you present your art for C&C, you have to accept everything, positive and negative.

IMO Less than positive comments serve to open up a conversations about alternative methods, techniques, form, etc. These are possibly things the artist didn't consider or didn't choose for a reason.
What part of it don't you like? Wood, color, technique. Getting negative feedback is how we learn. If you only allow positive comments (T-Ball syndrome) then everybody's works is great and needs no commentary.

With all of that being said, her is my take on the OP's piece.
Overall I like it. I would have proffered the edges to have been broken rather than natural edge to convey more of a battle worn shield. And not to get too literal (it is art after all) The overall profile could be a bit more convex, I find it to be too flat and may benefit from some more depth.
JMO, take from it what you will
