Getting close! I finished polishing the two sections of Acrobat @ Polich-Tallix Foundry on Wednesday at their expansive, new location in Walden, NY. Next week we'll weld it back together, make sure the edges line up right, and complete the final tune-up: grinding out the new welds, and giving the entire surface a once over to clear up any remaining imperfections. I haven't finalized the base design, but likely it will be cylindrical and add somewhere between 9-12 inches of height to the 7'3" sculpture.
