Enforced Break

I am an Engineering Geologist when not sculpting. Unfortunately (or fortunately in this current economic climate) I had to do some engineering geology work. I was away in North Devon, SW England, supervising a ground investigation for a Wind Farm. So, I spent 5 weeks (should have been 4 weeks, but  of course it overran) freezing on top of a hill, north of Barnstaple rather than freezing in a barn in Ballymurphy working away at my sculpture!

I arrived back at it in the 11th of March,  the pressure is now really on to complete the sculpture on programme.  The stone hadn’t changed while I was away!!

So, I finally set forth on the twin cherries.  Roughing it out by ribbing it with the angle grinder and knocking off the ribs with a hammer.
