Re: basalt and granite carving clips

If you go down to the woods today you'll be sure of a big surprise - FLYING CHAINSAWS!!! Better duck!
But seriously, the Shadow Carver film (will watch others later) was really technically instructive - I've
only used plugs and feathers method for straight lines so seeing this sophisticated method for removing a
hollow so efficiently and so well presented was a real eye opener. And the finished piece was subtly
satisfying in how it sits (and is sat on) in the landscape. Thank you very much for this.
Nigel.

goodbye workshop

Hello all
I have had an interesting couple of weeks (putting it mildly).  Having run
out of money, with no commissions or sales on the horizon I have had to make
some fundamental choices about how I continue.  With two children and a
mortgage my first priority is to provide for my family and it was with this
in mind that I have closed my workshop and am no longer sculpting full time.
 It's a mixed blessing because now I feel totally free of constraints and
will continue to sculpt without any of the pressures of having to pander to
results focused output.  It wont matter a bit what I now produce and that
provides a real sense of freedom - not that I am looking for any radical
change to my thoughts and processes (but it's a small consolation that I
keep telling myself)

After making space at home I have been able to get over the loss of my
workshop space.  I am cutting back on the tools I use and will revisit a
slower pace of mallet and chisel.  My lifting crane has been sold and all
stone reduced to a manageable size (I still need two people to lift most
pieces though).

Not sure what the future holds and not yet fully re-adjusted to my new sense
of place, worth, self or identity.  Not so much a crisis and an evolution. I
intend to plan for a re-emergence in a few years time.

I am not going away.

regards

Daniel

Re: goodbye workshop

Daniel,

What a big and hard decision!

You are a sculptor and will always be!

I see what you are going through as I know how difficult it is to make a 
living out of sculpting!

I wish you the best!
