Over the hills and far away

1 July 2014

Its been a busy week for the slug ferrying Rhonda back and forth over the Cabrach to the Scottish Sculpture Workshop where she is completing her coin project.

With initial task of wax forms being made of each coin produced at Rhonda's workshops carried out on the previous visit. The final and most tricky stage of casting the coins in copper has begun. The first attempt at casting almost ended in near disaster when the furnace ran out of propane gas. But after a quick trip to the local garage the second attempt was much more successful and Rhonda returned with her first set of coins.

Isidora has also been bitten by the molten metal bug and has also spent some time over in Lumsden experimenting with molds for her copper casting project. Or it could be she just likes dressing up?
