35 Days: Serenbe Installation

35 Days Until Serenbe Installation: This weekend I started to clean the cast leaves by smoothing them on the lathe and diamond wheel. When I get them the way I like them, I will sign and date each leaf.

Hopefully I will be able to get some shots of the lathe work as well as the application of the signature and the finished leaves.

The majority of the leaves (about 120 of them) are between 7-8 inches and the remaining 30 leaves are various sizes from 3 -10 inches. There will only be a couple of 10 inch leaves.
The portion of the project that entails producing the leaves nears completion. As I discussed earlier, the installation will take place on October 30-31. We will begin early the morning of October 30 and work until the installation is complete.

42 Days: Until Installation of The Serenbe Project

I'm still working on the Serenbe Project which is slated for installation starting at 7:00am on October 30 and spilling over into October 31 if need be. That's 7:00 am EST, which is very early. I plan on traveling to Serenbe on the 29th of September so that I can visit the site and see any changes that have been made by the blacksmith.

Sorry for the lack of pictures. The Microsoft Meltdown contributed to that, however, I understand that Blogger had its' own set of issues. More pictures are ready to be posted of the process of weighing the glass when these current issues with Blogger are resolved.

Microsoft Meltdown

Sorry for the lack of posts these past few days....there has been a Microsoft meltdown on my computer. I had planned to post 4 images of the process that I use weighing the glass, but words will have to do tonight. I will attempt to post the information tomorrow in my next post. Somehow the computer does not want to upload to blogger, and it is very frustrating....especially when you are posting under a time constraint. Do you ever wonder if Microsoft has a clue about its products?

52 Days Left: Until Installation at Serenbe

Tonight is the opening at Artwalk in Birmingham, Alabama. Several of my friends are showing at Artwalk and I'm going by and visit with them a minute or two.....then back to work tomorrow in the studio bright and early.

These are the friends who will be at ArtWalk this weekend: Julian Hazlett, Debra Riffe, Lisa Dunn and Donna Steele. I hope they have a good show.
