Capitals

Here is the remnants of an ongoing project that was on,, then put on hold, then off, and now ( after nearly a year) they want to start up again.  If you buy a ticket, then get off the ride you can’t get back on at the head of the line. Unfortunately that’s where this job ended up. At the end of the line. I can’t very well stop other projects already in the works since the time they cancelled this job several months ago and put current projects on the back burner. The freight train keeps rolling along and it doesn’t stop.

But I thought you might enjoy seeing some of the other things I had been working on . A shame as they were coming along nicely until the plug got pulled. All that work………..

IMG_3679 There are a total of 8 panels which will form two capitals. Here they are just mocked into position .

The first one in this row is out of the Duplicator and hasn’t been cleaned up yet.

    what a shame to stop such a project, where already is visible what it would have become, so much is there already, so promising … i feel with you, mark.

    I feel bad that at this point and what I have on, and lined up for my workbench I can’t help them out. Really,, to call after such a long time and tell me they need this and more carvings in two weeks? I can’t justifiably put my current customers on hold just because they decided to get their project going again.
    I haven’t exactly been sitting around waiting to see just what would happen after they told me the job was dead. I moved on.

    yes, this was my point too. i really cannot understand how they can come now and hope you could pick up their work immediately again. that is quite rude. …but, from the image i see, it seems to be not the only such incidence, adam and even still sits there (though i cannot remember to have it seen with the surrounding arch installed, and from what i can see the carving looks quite far, maybe finished?), it is quite a time when you carved on that. is that project abandoned too, or has it just a long “time-schedule” and you are finishing that now?

    Doris,, that too is a long term project. Many priests have come and gone and nobody is really doing anything about it. So it sits and waits. I had put it all away at one point, another priest was taking over the church,, then he left,, another was put in place,, and the saga continues. There is quite a bit of work left to be done on it. A Crucifix inside with two other figures, carvings for the insides of the doors, carvings of capitals, arches, the piece above the doors, spires etc. A lot!
