Carving The Sculpture...
Rachel's method of working is to use the final maquette as a focus, but to then also enter into a 'conversation' with the wood and her tools. It becomes an artistic event in its own right, with woman, wood and saw all working together until finally the sculpture presents itself, then it is sanded down and oiled to be super smooth and incredibly tactile.
We decided to add bolts to the sculpture for the resin treasures to attach to. There are also some bolts running on the underside of one of the curves on the sculpture.
