Different Kinds of Darkness
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.
