I think the point is, do you want a mathematically precise layout, or something hand made by an artist, showing a human being was involved? It is not a case of right or wrong - just what you prefer.  For darts, I would like a symmetrical, machine made board please! For a paperweight, maybe something a tad more artistic?

Interesting discussion... me, I would love an assymetrical dartboard maybe I could get more bullseyes  :girlcheer:

The connoisseur loves perfection and that is what cut glass is all about but then when an artist gets the feel for cutting glass some remarkable things happen. So it is fundamentally the old craftsmanship vs artistic expression. Luckily for all there is a much difference in taste as there is arts and crafts.

At the 2005 conference Ray Metcalfe put on a display of weights for sale. My daughter then 6 was enchanted and bought her first paperweight - a Peter McDougall miniature for about £10
