All the pieces are slowly taking shape. Kitty Drake has been helping; the sculpture now has paper on it and the Narrows has most of its underpainting.

The mulberry paper, adhered with cooked wheat paste, drew up when it dried, pulling away from the indentations in the armature. It’s like a drum– tapping different spots produces a variety of sounds. Now we are experimenting with small areas to re-form the paper to the original shape.

It’s all a learning experience!

  1. The things I learn from blogs! An iceberg drum- just kidding Tara. The process appeals to me, I look forward to the final outcome. I hope I’m not away for the opening.
