2006 Form Plaque Progress: Refining the Carving

In this photo the spirals of the waves are nearly complete on the left, and the flood waters are visible behind St. Paul. The right side of the waves are beginning to take shape.

Here is a detail of the spiral waves – what was a simple design on paper has proved to be much more complicated thing to carve.  I am pleased with the effect, especially when the shadows are picked up in the texture of the waves.

The details have been added for two of the shields from the sesquicentennial logo – each individual element of the School symbol will have its own shield, the crossed swords, the book, and the pelican.

Here is another detail of the waves with the flood waters in the background and the sword shield above.  The scroll is still being worked on, and will have the sesquicentennial dates carved into the ribbon portion.

This Saturday, October 1st, I will be setting up a display in the Upper Dining Hall for the Alumni Volunteer Weekend event.  I will be displaying samples of my carving as well as the progress so far for the 2006 plaque.  If you are an SPS Alum and will be attending the event be sure to stop by and see the display.
