The sculpture is completed and at the powder coaters

The Under the Prairie Sky sculpture is finished and at the powder coaters! It's been an incredible experience and I have enjoyed collaborating with the King George School students and staff and school council!

Thank you very much for the opportunity to create this sculpture, for your research, your element ideas, and patience through the long process.

The powder coaters think the clear coat will be applied on or before December 15th.

I have updated the slideshow to show the progress to Nov 26th when we delivered to the powder coaters!

Final Weld is Placed, and Dog Ate Respirator Mask!

Hi Everyone

The sculpture has been oxidized and I will take some more before Geoff starts sanding. I updated the slide show below so you can see how far the progress is. Geoff was very excited as he placed the final weld tonight! However, our dog, Kona, stole his respirator mask off the garage door handle and had fun chewing on it. Yuck! Good thing Geoff is done the welding now, and doesn't have to worry about fumes.

Now its time to do the final sanding. Then it will be off to the powder coaters. The "To Do" list is getting shorter and the sculpture has become very heavy! We will have an adventure trying to flip it over!

All the Best!

King George School - Under the Prairie Sky Progress to Nov 26, 2011

The slideshow now shows progress to Nov 26th.
I just edited the slide show and it shows progress to November 17, oldest to newest photos. Click on a photo to enlarge. Thank you!
Here is a quick progress report on the King George School collaborative sculpture "Under the Prairie Sky" up to 9:30 at night tonight.  Geoff was still hard at work when I was taking the pictures, so I will update captions on the photos this weekend. The newest photos are at the end of the slide show.
