The next project was to prepare the pedestal for the Angel (remember her?). Hold that. I'm packing for a month in Colorado to grind custom curves for marble coping edging a swimming pool. Because this blog is only meant to be a record of what develops in this studio, there will no more posts until I return in late November. Please return as well. I love to tell this slow-mo tale, and you have become real to me. You peer over my shoulder and keep me clear. Goodbye for now.
