Product Design - Kettle

In order to illustrate to prospective clients some of my 'skillz' I decided to go back to my product design roots and design a kettle. Not very glam I know, but it shows that I can do high res meshes as well as decent rendering, so here we have it.
I'll be getting down and dirty with mental ray in the forthcoming weeks so the renders should get better, plus this was done in 'Max' which I have limited knowledge of the renderer, lights and materials etc...thats my excuse and Im sticking to it.
By the way I feel I should tell you that im doing this as an agent told me my concept stuff was strong enough but my 3d needed different types of stuff to make me more 'marketable' to an array of industries.
Expect some loose pretty painting as a direct back lash to this :)

Nice kettle, homes. This kind of stuff isn't really my cup of tea (ho ho!), but this is strong work mister.

Though you might want to consider rewriting your "About Me" bit on the sidebar there... (does winky face).

PS. I just realised that there's an artist called David Gemmil who does Spumco style art, and I meant David Gemmell of a Waylander/ Druss etc fame.
Apologies if I got the wrong David.
