In the Workshop – sanding my heart out


Tall tailed bird sculpture progress

There are no shortcuts with sanding – it just has to be done if I want a flawlessly smooth surface.  This bird sculpture will be polished, so if I’m not thorough I’ll be found out.

As I work through the grades of abrasive I’m feeling the finish as much as seeing it, finger tips super sensitive to the smallest imperfection.  It is deliberate and methodical labour, a process I love – a process of bringing out the natural warmth and richness of pure stone colour.
