Over the past few days I assembled the materials for a sculpture installation in Morrisville, VT. I checked out marble blocks in Rutland, bought building stone from a quarry in Plainfield and lumber from a mill in North Hyde Park.
On site in Morrisville, I outlined the piece with sticks and ribbon to get a sense of its presence on the land, began excavation and finished the foundation work. The stonework will rest on a 3’ deep base of crushed stone. When completed, the sculpture will enclose two burial plots. The addition of a sand-filled,wood coffer will allow the second grave to be easily hand-dug at a future date.
Thanks to Tim Stone for trucking and to Buckwheat, Tom, Brian and Larry of Green Mountain Landscaping for their fine work preparing the site.
