stavn Something about the wood, concrete, steel & light made me post another of No. 16 #the100dayproject #100daysofCarving 4d
  •   mrkithandkin Something about that credenza needs more posting for sure and the white and concrete and carving. Dying to do a carved patchwork collaboration like real bad. 4d
  •   mrkithandkin Also, I haven't read about your 100 day project so I apologize for my lazy ignorance, but any chance a guy can acquire one or two of these? 4d

  •   stavn @mistersmall_ I really have to make time.. 9-5 job plus kiddo plus grownup stuff all vies for my time. My setup helps, so I sit down and carve a lot of stuff three times a week - then finish / paint & shoot & plan the next pieces daily - source wood every other weekend. I wonder what it will be like in a few weeks... 1w
  •   mistersmall_ Fair play to you, I've just got the 9–5 to worry about. Do you plan to sell the pieces? 1w
  •   tapestry.chris It's such great stuff - simple and beautiful. Have you sold any @stavn ? 1w
  •   stavn @mistersmall_ @tapestry.chris I want to show them in a gallery at the end... not sure if patience will hold up that long. I haven't done this before either.. thoughts? 1w
  •   mistersmall_ I'm thinking that later on in the project I'll do some bigger pieces that require more time than I can fit into one day and so I'll just spend a little bit of time each day and show the progress. Unless you wanted to exhibit 100 individual pieces this could be an option. 1w
  •   stavn @mistersmall_ yeah most so far are on the small side.. I have a few slabs to take on.. looking for stumps and live edge pieces. I would like to walk away with a large body of work.. 100 pieces seems like he goal even if it's past the 100 days. 1w
  •   tapestry.chris Just keep going I say. They are awesome. One is beautiful - a collection becomes a hundred viewpoints. A body of great interesting and accessible work. Keep the first day philosophy you created close by and display, too - it gives it all that ethereal quality that good sculpture deserves. (And then sell them for loads ! Haha) 1w
  •   stavn @tapestry.chris thanks for the kind words. I'm excited to see where this goes 1w

In the first week there has been excitement, momentum and a sense of relief. Hard work is paying off, but what does that look like in the next 13 weeks? What excuses and distractions are going to creep up? This past week I got sick, had repairs to do on my truck, a date night and time aside for Stacking blocks with @leif.stevens for his 100 days. This next week already looking daunting... here we go!
