One twist at a time
Matt was busy a good part of the day attaching the expanded lath to the welded frame I had done previously. Hand tying metal lath to an armature is hard work at the best of times. This piece with it's intricate workings was doubly so. It takes a great deal of practice and experience to become a good wirer. Lots of band-aids need to be kept handy too for the lath edges are sharp and cut like a razor if you aren't careful. Matt is doing a great job keeping up to me as I do the welding.
Pretty soon it will be time to mix up some more concrete and start sculpting this BIG piece and make it come alive in the process.! Stay tuned...
