With each day the new project is a series of new things, each setting the style and level of finish we will do through the rest of the job. Each new aspect of the job is a test, to see how all the different techniques and mediums can be blended together to look like one large, seamless piece.
The beginning of the sawn woodgrain was sculpted today, the first two of a number of wine barrels that will frame feature pieces, bulletin boards, and other things through the pub.
The carved concrete woodgrain is designed to match the woodgrain we routed into the mantle piece yesterday.
When I got home I couldn't resist putting in a few minutes to finish sculpting the tortoise.
Next up we begin the painting process which is bound to be a lot of fun!
