This like a lot of what i do is made from the scrap bin of a local hardware store. I tend to start projects that take a lot of time. It’s taken me a while to realize that I’m in love with the process. I enjoy solving problems. The second one would be so much better, I just have no interest in making it.

I get the feeling that this is pretty large – almost life size? Quite the project! Thanks for sharing.

I know what you mean about the second one. If I am going to make multiples it is better to do them all at once.

Wonderful work Harry.

I am just like you (except I have no talent) when it comes to doing more than one of something. I totally lose interest in repeating the experience. However, this might not be the best path to becoming a master at making a particular item, but again, like you, it’s the process for me which is fun, especially when one gets a reasonable result, and yours is much better than just a reasonable result.

Great work Harry, but I’m sensing that the real chord you’re striking here is that many of us work for the challenge, not the product. I need to have at least one facet of any project that I’m not at all sure I can succeed at to make it interesting, to solve the problems, like you. Once I’ve solved them they are “yesterday’s pizza” and on to the next challenge. I commend your journey and I understand completely.

Terrific sculpture! Your work certainly is intriguing.

By the way, one of my favorite movies is Brazil. A classic! I assume that’s where you got the name from? De Niro played a bit part but it certainly was memorable…

I also hate doing things twice – so its surprising really, that I have two children!

Super work.

Yoh! If this is as large as I think it is, you must have done a LOT of sanding! Impressive work.
