A weekend full of stone dust and the sound of the grinder, what could be better? I made progress during the last days, can see the forms finding their place in the stone. I seem to have the hang of the grinder now and the carving is developing in the speed I feel confident to complete the carving in time for “Art in the Garden”. No doubt there will be the last minute rush and panic but I know I will get there. I like the forms, especially the top part (see image below), slightly nervous about the hidden side, need to turn the sculpture over again to make sense of all sides, having the stone on a turntable makes a huge difference and having it nearer the door so the natural light can get to it. I am happy with my work.
