During the week I got nine steps carved out. To quicken the process I cored two holes through the block because I want the steps going all the way through a 'cave like' effect...bursting out through the top. These process photos show the work lying down, but it is meant to be a vertical piece.

Now it's really starting to get fiddly, the slot or channel I'm working in is only 9.5 centimeters wide. the degree of difficulty is increasing as I go into the block. I'm trying to get my equipment and meaty little fingers in there...
Where there's a will there's a way! Now I've got 13 steps-smokin'.
Steps area wonderful, wonderful symbolic device to use. To me they convey, the journey, striving to attain. So simple yet powerful.
