By the end of May, I'd made 1,000 ceramic butterflies and 1,000 fiberglass fabric butterflies. That's so many that I'm wondering what kind of person would actually do something like this. Remarkably, I find it quite soothing to make small repetitive elements. Each ceramic element has some kind of mark as do most of the fabric elements.
Next comes the wire phase when I attach wires to each element, sometimes linking them together.
On Monday, July 27th, the installer from Skyline Scaffolding arrived. It was a tight sqeeze to fit two 5x10' towers into the space between the benches. But it worked.
This will be my home for the next several weeks.
