The Cherub Sculpture VI

26 March, 2012 – 8:11 am

This post goes into the measuring process in more detail, focusing on the arms of both of the Cherubs.

As you can see I marked on the template the distance in from the edge of the stone (picture 3), I drew a line which I transferred onto the stone by using 2 rulers (picture 4), and more than one pair of hands!

I cut this area off and masoned the stone off completely square to the arm. I was then able to mark the heights of the measurements, in pictures 6 and 7 I have moved around the arm in order get a better understanding of the forms, I have started to cut under the arm to reveal the body of the Cherub.

As you can see the measuring is becoming more refined and I am getting closer to the finish!
