Still Making the Doughnuts

For better or worse, I'm starting to feel like Huck Finn. I've been convincing a few good friends to help whole bunch to lend a hand pulling the Visions in Clay show together. For the past week and a half, it's been labor time! We've been putting in more than a few 6 hour days, fabricating 27 wall mount pedestals and 11 freestanding pegestals specifically for this exhibition. 3 coats of paint later we are nearly done with construction and I'm thinking next week will be a busy week bolting these to the walls and building islands of pedestals.
This is so totally worth it...

Those look great; what material are you using Mdf?, how will you mount the wall ones to the wall?

this is pretty darn exciting- I look forward to seeing it up!

Hey Linda, the wall mounted pedestals will simply be secured to the walls with screws. Slick and easy...
Tomorrow's big chore is to truck all the shipping boxes to storage. It's a really really big pile.

it's great to see that the exhibition will be done up right. i've encountered galleries that don't realize how expensive and/or time consuming making pedestals is, not to mention how essential they are for a good 3d show. you can't wait til the last minute, that's for sure. can't wait to see the show

Those pedestals look great, and are going to look fantastic with work on them. After the show is set up, I'm sure you will feel thrilled about all your hard work!
When you posted about the boxes earlier, I was going to suggest that you rent one of those storage "pods" that people have brought ot their houses these days, but I didn't know if it was possible money or space wise. Maybe in the future that would work.
Soldier on!

Hey those pedestals are looking real nice. A cadillac job for sure. I'm looking forward to seeing this show up and running. This is such a good thing for Delta and Stockton! Carry-on. Thanks go out the Gary, Bruce,and Bruce, you and all others. If I could shed this day job I'd be right there with all of you.
