Just wondering if there was anyone who sculpted on CR? If so, what kind of sculpting do you do? Clay sculpting, stone carving,wood working, glass sculpting etc.? Do you do it for fun, professionally or both?

I worked on the design team at a zoo building new exhibits and statues and junk. I was more on the apprentice side when I left but we did a lot of cement sculpture.

Thats neat! Do you do cement sculpture in your free time? Did you continue doing it? What got you into cement sculpture?

I haven't since I quit the job to go to school. It's an extremely expensive medium. Mostly though the guy teaching me was just extraordinary at it, photo won't upload but if I can get it to i'll show you some of the work we did. (and by we I mean him while I mixed the concrete blend and observed trying to take it all in.) Lot's of different balances to get the right consistency and it's a tough one considering how easy it is to crack once it dries and how quickly you need to sculpt. The wrong weather and you are just up a creek.
