Moving along nicely

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┬áto 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.
