So I am just past the half way point in this endeavour and I feel that I am ahead of schedule. Of the 8 large pieces I have 4 done 2 that just need to be polished and 2 more to cut up. Of the 2 columns remaining I know what I’m doing with one of them. I am really hoping to have most of April to work on small pieces and bases.
This was a polishing day both the Little Lady and the Gorilla got shined up
Then the second of the 4 foot columns hopped up on the bench for me
Draw and split then cut and trim.
For those that don’t know me I have been fascinated with Egyptian sculpture for years. I just can’t seem to get enough of it. They carved Hard stone with soft tools. I owe lots of my inspiration to this ancient work by unknown individuals.
On to the next one!
There it is the biggest of the big ones ready to go. Ive never had a chunk of stone this big in my studio before moving it was interesting! I will buy more of this stone to carve it is sensational!!! First I need some more money tho… So some one buy something.LOL
