I really like what you're doing with these (including previous ones, both from recently and in earlier years).

I've been particularly looking at them upside-down as would-be finials.
Even though we often say "a form should look good upside down", I've come to the conclusion that there is a subtle difference between the best icicles and upside-down finials. This is an example of that. The cove elements here, between birds beaks, stretch the form out a bit, which I think is perfect for icicles, but perhaps might not look quite as good in finials.

So, IMO, we have subtly different creatures, and you're nailing them. ...GG
