We are excited to confirm that Stage Two of the Homefront Sculpture Project will be going ahead, with Banyule City Council recently approving the funding. The final four sculptures: Lighthorse, Pilot and Sailor, World War I Nurse and The Letter will be carved over the next couple of months and installed in Greensborough War Memorial Park in November.
Leigh Conkie is currently organising all the wood we’ll need for these pieces (two of them are quite large!) and Hikaru is planning to fly in from Japan in September to start the carving with Leigh. There will be quite a bit of metalwork on this set of sculptures and we’ll be planning the forging with our blacksmith, Roland this week.
