I doubt that I will have many images to post for the reminder of this event. Ojars’ camera has developed some serious problems so I am lending him my camera to document the symposium & conference. I will try to use my phone camera to post images. Bear with me as I work out my tech problems. The second Symposium Iron Pour went as smoothly as the first, with no injuries, mishaps or problems! Another 6,000 lbs. of iron went into the molds and we started earlier than last Sat. so we finished up early as well. Yesterday was the arduous task of de-vesting these huge molds and beginning to cut off the sprue systems, etc. More tons of sand moved by hand by this exceptional crew of young artists. The weather has continued to be excellent working weather ,overcast skies most of each day are appreciated by those doing the heavy lifting. It usually clears up by mid-afternoon and we get a few hours of brilliant sunshine. Every sunset is spectacular. I have to add some bracing elements to my Lightening Strike for safety and security reasons. I spent all morning yesterday grinding the pin to fit the stone and the rest of the day fabricating the braces out of plate steel. This morning I will try to get the braces welded into place so we can move the sculpture to site and get her up! Hoping things go well. Its 7 AM, time to get to work! Keep following.
