Cement Balls Rolled into Place!

Today we uncovered the remaining four concrete balls (See post 1, post 2, post 3 for additional info) and rolled them into place!  Exciting.

They are a short distance into the woods surrounded by natural wood grass, and are visible from David's studio and from our hiking trails.  

The last four have been curing for a number of days so we removed the black plastic. They are still a molted gray. In a day or two they will dry and match the original three. We are a little surprised by how white the concrete is but we expect it will weather to a different shade of gray. Time will tell.

Even though they are very heavy we had no trouble moving them. I expect we will rearrange them regularly, and the kids will do so again every time they come home to visit.

And here is a view with me in it so you can get a size relationship.

We love our woods and our growing sculpture garden! Sculpture Week 2011 is over. Both David and I are back at work but what fun we had. Time to start thinking about ideas for 2012. In the meantime we are considering titles for this sculpture. Any thoughts?

  1. Those are really neat! Love how they look in the woods.

    1. We love them as well, and you should see them through the seasons! Gorgeous with a winter snow on them.
