It Begins… The Template is Cut.


Remember the old OHP? Before everything went all digital and fancy, we used these bulky bits of kit to project images onto the wall.  I drew a little version of the Wave onto something called a Transparency (a see-through plastic sheet) and the image is then projected onto a large piece of hardboard.  Here you can see me drawing a line over the projection.  The Wave is ready to be cut out….

20131012-184458.jpgSafety Goggles On! And no jokes about blondes with power tools please… The Wave is carefully cut out with a jig saw.  Et Voila!  The first template is now ready. 

Although the original plan was for a 1500mm Wave structure, we thought carefully about the location at the Hotel.  Now it can blow a bit of a hooley down there, and an alarming image sprung to mind of a giant metal wave rolling onto a passing car, so we reduced the size to 1200mm.  That will still look awesome and won’t hurt as much…


About Islandgirl

I always wanted to be a mermaid. But I quite like my legs, so I became a Scuba Diving Instructor instead. Then I found a Texan husband in the Caribbean, moved to Jersey and had children. The water's a bit chilly for me here, so I decided to make my love of creativity my new job. How cool is that! So that's what I do: I paint, I draw and I sculpt. My inspiration comes from my travels, and from the beautiful nature all around me. Follow me a little bit on one of my journeys as I make a big big sculpture for one of local hotels. Thanks for visiting...
