Similarly the sculpture was almost too big to fit in the U-Haul van that I rented to transport it. When it is finished and the wing tips are fully extended I will need to rent a larger moving van.
For past sculptures I typically only added up to ten cups of clay at a time then let the clay harden before applying more. At Art on the Street we added about two hundred cups without giving the clay a chance to harden in place. I will need to come up with a plan of how to address this for future public participation events.
I am going to let her rest for a few weeks and harden into the correct shape. Then we will carry her down into my basement studio for rehab and more clay layers.
