Iron Horn - Monumental - Feet and Lighting

Today I built light stands to elevate my swing arm lamps so that I can control the lighting on the monumental piece I'll be working on.
What does a sculptor do, after all? We shape shadows till they make familiar forms. To create personality and mood, I constantly reposition the lighting. So I needed to make movable stands for this.
First I removed the tape from the feet where I injected foam the night before.

Now the feet can be reshaped. Next week, probably towards the end of the week, I'll be able to finally start to add clay to the foam.
That's it for today. Hope your enjoying these entries.
