Today I began to work the finish up to a polish. This is partly to see how the translucence of the stone affects the reading of the form. Once polished the form is less easy to read as you can see into the stone. I am glad that the forms on this work are bold; less bold work would be lost in the translucence. I shall see how I find it tomorrow in the clear light of morning. I am not completely happy with some of the shapes and the way they join one another. The ones that work best are close to the alkathene pipe shapes described earlier. The fattening of the form at the join provides a wonderful tension that is so much more energetic than two tubular forms meeting each other at an angle.
