At least the sun is back. We had 5 or 6 straight days of rain. Which means no biking, no long walks through the forest...BUT...it does mean the workshop is now open for business!
...polished! * The base is made of soapstone as are the pieces above. Soapstone comes in a variety of colours - I really like the rich browns in this piece. I didn't alter the quartz.
In progress...(this is the sculpture that I took the piece off of which became the leaf). More shaping to be done before I begin to polish...
This one is partially polished...will finish tomorrow. I am going to place this one in a shadow box as it is a thin relief sculpture and needs support. I like the other side better but didn't photograph it for some reason.
This one is partially shaped; will work on it more tomorrow.
Future works of art :) Both are quite large so I will be taking a hammer and chisel to them first to make several sculptures out of both - I prefer to work with small pieces.
This is week two in the shop - I am quite pleased with what I've accomplished so far. As they say...it keeps me off the streets!
