It is slow progress in the hardest parts of the block, although as the air-hardened outer crust is penetrated, the material becomes easy to work – but with access difficulties reaching it. We have two more bird forms arising and I’ve been starting to think of our emergent figure as ‘Birdman’ – quite ironic after your conversations early on in the Spring about how their were a large proportion of airline pilots living in Highwood.
It has been quiet and my pace is increasing; pressure mounts. Schools are breaking up and holidays are upon us, but our sessions are ticking away and come September the sculptor will be gone.
JULY: Tues 23rd, Sat 27th
AUG: Thurs 1st, Sunday 4th, Thurs 8th, Sunday 11th, Bank Holiday Monday 26th
We will finish during mid September, so don’t miss out on contributing to the stone before then.
