I went to Moon Rise to make an adjustment to Moon Rise Quartz Migration. large boulders were added to and rearanged while the entrance was expanded and unified with more gravel. Beauitfull! So I needed to add a few more white quartz stones to work with the other changes. While there I photographed something I made over the past winter. Their called Moon Rise Uppings Their all hanging from the rafters that over hang the breezeway between the frontdoor and the garage.
P.S. The spiral cone in the back ground hanging from the eave, is incence that burns "24/7".
It smells like all the religions in the world got thrown in to a caldron and boiled down by half. The good stuff rose to the surface and was scummed off,dryed and made in to this incence. There ya have it. It's just my sence of smell.
Now it's something else. The integrity of the two halve's is still de-intacted.
Quartz stones bubble up from the surface now and the holes drop through. The lightness of color will darken in time. The light ness is a result of a mix of 1/3 hydrated lime in the final mix ov concrete. Stay tuned for the next stage.....
Now all the structure is covered. The first coat of concrete receives a second and a third and maybe a fourth to get the surface where it needs to be. This is a new thing for me to do; showing you the various stages that go into a sculpture. I can imagine it will be good to know the history behind a set form. It too may be a surprise to see how many conscious decisions are attributed to an object that really has no direct reference to anything but it's viewers presents. What a fresh beginning for you.
Often the internal structure of some of the forms I make are more interesting to people than what I want to ultimately see. So here is a look before it's covered. The brown lines are steel welded together as a framework to support the galvinized steel mesh that skins over the surface. This surface will have some pass through holes and some quartz will be cemented into some.
