Sculptors usually work alone as the work is noisy, dusty and often dangerous. So it is a real treat to be surrounded by artists who willingly share their time, their skills and their enthusiasm; which makes the time fly by.
One of my sculptor mates told me I had ‘nailed it’, I think I will finish in good time. I fly home on the 29th so a few days to go.
I moved into accommodation at the Art Park so no more early morning bus rides etc. Also l have shower after work before dinner which is great.
My abode for the last week of the Symposium. It is situated at the Art Park which is great; no more early buses to catch ! Also billeted in this strange flower pot house is Nardoo pictured; he is from Iran now living in London and has been assisting me by showing me the right tools to use and the sequence in which to use them; so many tools.
Spending most of my time lately, shaping and polishing my 3 metre sculpture of white granite. Like every polishing job one has to go through all the grades using a angle grinder with both hands. Tiring work but rewarding and I take regular breaks and stretch.
