Sidewalk finally completed

 The sidewalk is finally completed. Did it take two years? Maybe more. It is a series of concrete slabs with stones and shells embedded on either side. As you can see, I'm still working on the concrete "tree/totem poles" that grace either side of the patio. A friend offered some wood from a deck he had taken down, which turned out to be a great way to finish the project. The curved forms were made from sheet metal roofing taken from the mobile home we disassembled at few years back.

 There are some faces modeled in mortar on either side of one section of sidewalk. Below is also a moon modeled in mortar, using a newer, better formula for making concrete clay.
Forms made from sheet metal strips.
