"...bustle in your hedgerow..."
The Green Bay sculpture commission proceeds at a vigorous pace.
The second side of the sculpture was preformed by removing excess material where the intertwining forms will be carved.
The pattern was transferred onto the side using a gridded scale drawing. Carving has begun on the currents.
The sculpture was laid on its side using the in-studio gantry crane. This makes it much easier to carve the forms. By the end of the week, most of the current forms have been roughed in. There has been some work on the bottom circular form, as well.
There wasn't a lot of extra time to do anything fun this week. The crane truck was fixed and there was a lot of 'catch-up' work to do. However, it's always a good idea to 'stop and smell the roses' from time to time. There are no roses in march, but the 1st wildflowers have made their appearance. This is a small patch of bloodroot in bloom.
