Intimate Conversation

This is a piece that I started some time ago, but never got around to finishing. The idea is two people talking, heads bent close together, with a stream of water flowing from each “mouth” combining into one stream representing the convergence of thought or emotion. Here is a 3D sketch.

It’s being carved out of a block of Texas limestone that is 48”h x 50”w x 7”d. The first step, after sketching the design on the stone was to cut out the center so that I can drill the water channels for the mouths. These channels have to intersect with the water channels that I will drill later from the bottom on each side. Stay tuned for more.
