Teaching a stone to talk III

By this stage I am into the nitty-gritty of production. As usual when you are working with techniques that you haven’t used before, I am having to adapt and change my ideas as the material asserts its presence, refusing to do certain things that you had hoped possible, but at the same time offering new directions. This is a scan of the stone made by a small desktop scanner. About the size of a coffee maker, this 3D scanner took less than a hour to go right around the stone. Here is one-eighth of the scan with a photo of the original stone wrapped around it. Thanks Musaab for your skill in keeping the scanner on track, also for the great coffee!
