The Giraffe Project-1

Now begins the giraffe. In this photo, I have pulled back part of the Somewhere Else curtain and put in a pipe which I have bent with the help of a pipe bender and three friends in order to define the curve that will help me figure out how to design the giraffe neck. She will be leaning out of Somewhere Else and looking around and out the glass door.

Here is a sketch by George that shows a child looking into the carousel building and the giraffe looking back.

And finally, the first step, gluing up the giraffe’s head. Behind the head you can see the basswood boards which will make up the neck. Through my shop window, snow today!
