Finally got my chainsaw out to begin cutting Sculpture number 3. The day began well and ended badly!
Maquette for Sculpture 3 – balsa wood 1/5 scale
Nice firm wood at this end
Rotten wood at this end
Tried to cut it away
The rot goes in about 12 inches!
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.
