A rotten day

Finally got my chainsaw out to begin cutting Sculpture number 3. The day began well and ended badly!

Tried to cut it away

I’ll have to rethink the form of this sculpture. It may turn out to be the first ever sculpture dictated by the passage of rot into old teak. Could turn out to be a weird shape.

Nice maquette though.
