The casts are delivered

Today the casts arrived back at the studio from the foundry.

Really pleased with how they look.

There's a little bit of finishing to do, but not an awful lot.

All three pieces set out in the yard. There is still a seating element to be made to accompany these pieces. Once this is completed everything will be delivered to site.

While we are waiting on pieces coming back from the foundry, contracts being finalised and getting the go ahead for another project I've spent some time doing some drawing for myself. This is a rare occurrence and should probably be encouraged. I'm actually quite surprised athow much I am enjoying doing this. I'll post more images as work progresses.
