slowly progressing work in studio

Phew! I feel like I'm getting there now. The sculptures for the Mining Institute show: Geological Etiquette (May 16th - June 16th) are really coming on now. In fact they are taking over not only my studio, but other parts of the house, much to my husband's dismay!

I feel my plaster mixing days are nearly over, have set a finish date for April 12th for these pieces, at least an end to the plaster process, they may have some kind of surface finish, but I'm undecided on that as yet.......
