I did know this could happen.
If I had a core drill, no problem. But, remember, I wanted more light in the cob...
...so I pounded my way deeper.
And simultaneously, with no other provocation, the soapstone, which I had put aside, hurled itself from its safe perch. (Remember, these two were made for each other).
I've been working on this piece since January 14 (see archive).
I've been working on damage issues (see archive).
I have a plan.
You just watch.
Right before I started this piece I glued together a sculpture which an old friend just bought.
Perhaps I'll become the master of the second chance.
