Carved Maquette for 'Holy Orders' 4 1/2" high
Slabs, firmed-up in a canvas sling are initially supported with blocks of clay.
As the form closes, it becomes self supporting.
Adjustments can be made by cutting 'darts' and moving the sections together.
With the hole tube inserted, the form can be completed by capping the remaining 2 ends.
After time under wraps to allow evening-up, the final surface is carved.
'Holy Orders', fired, still in the wood kiln.
