Thank-you to everyone who has bought a raffle ticket so far, here are the latest set of photos of my carving of a mermaid in the form of a ship figurehead.
As you can see I took advantage of the incredible weather over the bank holiday and was able to make some excellent progress.
In order to create the features I want I have to create blocks of stone to carve and from these I can carve and develop the detail.
Knowing that I wouldn’t be able to get on with my carving until the weekend I worked hard so I could get to the stage of hollowing through the tail.
I have washed the carving so that I am able to see what needs to be done next and there is still plenty of work to do.
Watch this space for more updates at the weekend!
