Had a close look at some pieces of boat keel that have been offered to me for my sculpture project. I think they might be made of teak and they are huge. Too heavy to even turn over. They have been left in scrubland for years and so the undersides are rotting away. They are also full of hidden metal fittings – a carpenter’s nightmare.
Just collected some large pieces of tulip wood from a local supplier ready to begin construction of, what I’m calling, my first sculpture.
Actually woke up this morning and rethought the current sculpture a little. Spent part of the day in my own workshop.
Spent today at the museum workshop cutting some shaping moulds for the sculpture that is currently on my mind. My proposal for the sculpture exhibition at the Museum commits me to making 10 sculptures for an exhibition in 9 months time, so I have already been thinking about these in the past 2 or 3 weeks.
