Happy May Day! It feels like vandalism to post Will's drawings with the glare of reflective glass ghosting over the image.... But this one recently went out to a private collection and this is the best image we have of it.
Will did a lot of preliminary drawings, and there's a series of completed works that we're all enjoying very much. Here's one of the mid-size ones (original pencil image, 16" x 14")
Okay, so maybe it can be worth it, saving all those little bits of scrap lumber...
My brother sent along this photo, commenting that Will "made this out of a scrap piece of 1x4 fir."
Turned out pretty well, I'm thinking!
15 Carp. Pennsylvania Slate, 36" Square. Two stage sandblast.
This is not the most elegant way to relaunch this blog, but at least it shows the beautiful, engaged work that Will has been caught up in over the winter.
Much beautiful new stonework - more, and better, pictures will follow.
Left: Granite, "Crenellation Coil, 2013 Spring Series (1)"
Right: Basalt, "Double Spiral, 2013 Spring Series (4)"
The note I got from Will: "Did four of these, all slightly different shapes, about the same time, once I got interested in the 'loop' motif. The granite with ochre flecks [on left] is about 7" - 8" inches [one of three similarly sized stones, two not depicted here]. Basalt [on right], about 2.5" x 1 13/4". Little fellow!"
The new stone blasting site he's been using has worked out well, and there's a backlog of images that I need to put up.
Happy Spring to all!
