Creating Second First was an entirely unfamiliar process to me. My learning curve was bent backwards.

I had created a wax cylinder … that I sculpted … sanded … and “finished” … into a positive sculpted wax form.  (An aside. For me to sand wax was a particularly perverse process. The words sandpaper and wax simply do not belong together!)

Then I had sent the wax form to a foundry (relinquishing control of my work for the first time in my 40 years of sculpting!) … to be transformed into kiln cast glass … and brought it back to my studio where I did the final grinding and sanding.
