Grinding and welding the bases
Grinding the same pattern into the dome bases of the Allium sculptures and welding the ridges of the birds sculpture bases.
The sound (noise) generated by the stone grinding wheel on the dome shape, ringing in a rhythm of repetition, brought a neighboring sound artist over to inquire about recording it. Next week she will set up microphones to capture and process it into her art. I will post any results here. Its funny, to me, the grinding sounds are noises to block out but music to her ears.
