As previously discussed, I shipped my new clay eagle sculpture to the bronze foundry. I packed in a box, inside another box. Nervously I called this morning to see if it had arrived. The voice said "yes" but they hadn't had the chance to open it. Then an hour or two later the phone rang and I anxiously answered, and my weekend will go well with the words... "I can't see any damage at all, it looks great". My weight was lifted. If you've seen Ace Ventura, you'll chuckle as to how that fits into this. Even if you haven't, experience gives me reason to worry. Now it's time for them to work their magic and a bronze eagle should be in flight soon.
