Day 32 – depth

Carving apprentices back today, before the rain. The task gets more difficult as the depth of the relief increases. Look at how a standard chisel length makes it increasingly tough on the carver’s hand:When using a longer (and heavier) tool, it becomes possible again. This will likely be the first place that we ‘pierce’ the block and see light through from the other face.

I met other visitors today in the early days of the stone’s progress – and now, they were anxiously awaiting release of the keys for their new home close by.  Welcome!
Next carving Saturday 1st June.
