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.
