This goal – start work on an original sculpture in 2010 – is completed but rather than passing it on, i’m changing the title to update it.

do a little every day to get started and
down the track a little every week.
I need to make a serious start on this project otherwise it won’t happen. Luckily today we didn’t know the recycling bin was going out so i have still got all my tin cans.
As pointed out to me they maynot be the best core for my sculpture because they will rot out but at this point i haven’t got anything else to use.

Today while driving, and thinking about my sculptures. i thought i could advertise my work by featuring it on the corner of our block. I wouldn’t put my first one there but I can do furture ones. I was thinking of making it a veritable sculpture feature showroom down there even. i really must get onto making these things. Saving my tin cans and experimenting.
Rather htan putting a whole lot down there i cna have a changing exhibition.

Last night it occured to me that my experiments with ferrocement can be used in my garden sculpture.
For instance one experiment that i need to make first up is a plank. I figure i can make planks of a certain size that will be good for my dome seating sculpture.
This is very exciting to know that i won’t have to just throw away my experiments and waste money. Though it means i need to make sure my experiments are as beautiful as the finished works need to be for the house.
It also occurs to me that instead of flag stones i could make a plank floor for my outdoor dining area. this particular job would require long planks.
I still haven’t found the right steel material for making the FC yet. I need to get on to this.

I have an idea in mind. It involves learning how to work with concrete. It should not be too expensive. It has a recycling element to it and will be a great feature in our garden.
I can use this work for promotion to get commissions, enter in art competitions and so on.
It may not be easy to establish during the wet season although i may be able to do the first part of it, short of the cement works during the wet season. But first I have to get all my planting done as that is critical.
I wont be able to finish it until next dry season I think.
