1st DIY lily pipe attempt out of acrylic wine glass

i came across an acrylic wine glass and i saw a lily pipe out of it. i just want to share it and ask for your honest opinion of what you think.

1. i have not actually seen a lily pipe in person like holding it in my fingers but i saw a lot of pictures of it
2. i dont really know the dynamics of the flow so i just want to recreate it base on how i see it.
3. i might use it or i may not but i might try just to see

anyways, my point is, base on pic if it will work... thanks

and it is also my first time to attach pictures so please feel free to correct me if i did it the wrong way

Excellent, turned out nice. How does it perform compared to other commercial glass lily pipes?

I've always regarded things like this as an aesthetic choice. Looks good to me. I'm trying to think of a term to explain the ingenuity yet frugalness of this contraption.
