The new mould, made from four bits of steel and cast iron bolted together, pregnant with possibilities and hope, the start of a new sculpture.
2 mm copper sheet has been formed around the mould and brass square rods are heated and bent around on top of the copper.
The brass rods are drilled, tapped, and screwed together.
One side is bolted up and the other side has begun.
I have had a few interruptions lately and not just the usual Christmas follies. We have had quite a run of fires in our area and as a member of the local brigade I have found myself bouncing around the bush in the fire truck far more than I would have expected. I’m hoping to get an uniterrupted spell in the shed soon but it’s not looking very pomising at this stage.
