Stages of creating "Body" for "Body, Mind and Spirit"

The finished piece, "Body" set 6" below ground on a 4' footer.
Below I've posted some of the various stages of putting together the "Body" part
of "Body, Mind and Spirit" for Galion Community Hospital. August 2009.
A bit out of order, but you'll get the idea.

Now what? Lots of wizardry on installation day. Keith and I pondering levitation.

Carving stone in the studio annex at Blackberry Farm.

Rudy and Keith 'flipping' the stones so that they could be carved on all sides. Simple physics really works!

Digging footers in June. Ah, the skills I have acquired through this experience!

The finished cast piece on installation day, August 2009.

Another view of the finished cast piece on the installation day.

Here I am fixing up the clay piece before it gets cast. The casting was accomplished
under the careful direction of Ron and Michelle at Light Sculpture Works in Cleveland.

In the beginning...there was clay...well really styrofoam before that, but that didn't quite work out.
