Final stages of planning for stone carvings

Final stages of planning for stone carvings

Always a challenge to prioritise, I could happily get more involved into the world of mould making and casting as it is all new and exciting… but I consciously steer away from it, keeping an eye on the stone carving, which is as exciting and needs in depth planning. I enjoy the motion of gaining a deeper understanding through drawing and model making, relating plans to the actual big lumps of rock, realising that a solidly considered plan before taking to the power tools is what I want. At times I feel like walking in the dark, at times I can see where I am coming from and which direction I am taking. It is not easy for me to visualise the whole form available to me and to make decisions where I want to reduce. I am getting there slowly knowing it is time and effort well spend.
