Two of the 'carved coal' sculptures are now complete, and have a shiny coat thanks to liberal application of black boot polish. It's time to work on the hanging fixtures and the 'leaf crown' that will be suspended above them. I'm looking forward to seeing them in the Mining Institute Library, and I like the idea that I'll be replacing the original crystal lamps with shiny, black, impenetrable objects, reflecting and absorbing light rather than emitting it.

Phew! I feel like I'm getting there now. The sculptures for the Mining Institute show: Geological Etiquette (May 16th - June 16th) are really coming on now. In fact they are taking over not only my studio, but other parts of the house, much to my husband's dismay!
I feel my plaster mixing days are nearly over, have set a finish date for April 12th for these pieces, at least an end to the plaster process, they may have some kind of surface finish, but I'm undecided on that as yet.......
