Yes, Its Marbleness

2 Apr

I went over this sculpture with some very rough sandpaper (#40) to learn how best to remove chisel marks and bruises. It’s really no harder than working with a very hard wood. So I often become aware as I work that some old muscle memory from my woodworking days is kicking in. It feels good. It’ll be a chore to refine the spheres here, then a joy to polish the thing to a bright shine. Meanwhile, there’s a fresh block of alabaster in the yard with my name on it.
