After months of
procrastination planning, I finally got around to creating the new endpoints for the labyrinth.
Digging out the holes for the forms was easy. Next I mixed up the concrete—slightly nerve-wracking, since I’ve never done this before—and scooped the muck into them. I knew enough to shake the form a bit to get any air bubbles out, although truly the structural integrity of the bricks is not an issue.
After I got them poured and they set up for about an hour, I decided that I did want the alchemical symbols for the four classical elements engraved into them. I cast about for ways to do that and came up with a simple solution: a flower pot and a folded piece of cardboard.
So here we have…
I realized that if this doesn’t work out—and there are some issues I may not be able to stand—I have half a bag of concrete mix still available.
(I had extra concrete this time, which I used to pour a small slab for the westpoint bowl’s stand to sit on. It had begun to list.)
