Eight or nine years ago, I started a carving (Yes, this is a carving!) that my youngest daughter had chosen as a piece that she would inherit when I was dead and gone. She gets the original carving, after I get the opportunity to cast thirty limited edition bronzes. This carving has taken over nine hundred hours (off and on) throughout those years. This piece started out to be just a barn owl, but then came the hayloft timber that the owl would be perched on. The timber was fine but did not look complete. I added, or should I say, I carved a bolt with a hook attached to the timber. My wife’s father had an old pulley with a rope for hoisting hay up into the barn loft. I used it as a model to carve the pulley and rope. I had never carved a rope before, what a task that was. At that point, I thought it was complete after all the time I had put in over the years; however, it was missing something. The mouse was the last addition to…….. “Just hangin’ out in the barn”.
