The roof with the turban still on it, slate gone and tar paper put down.
Six inches of insulation and most of the first side covered with red metal. The turbine is already down here. The guy you can see in the lower left is standing on 12' high stacks of insulation that are taking up my entire back garden (no garden left I'm afraid, 30 years of plantings gone in a week).
This is half the brass turbine from the peak of the theater (there is a big base as well, and a structure to suspend it). It is 54" across at the base and absolutely beautiful, the grace of the lines is astonishing. I am so grateful to Tim Mays who is doing my roof for getting it down without destroying it. They had to do it without a crane and it was not easy to say the least. Now what to do with it?
Elfie Harris. Marble sculptor, photographer and owner of 47 High Street. So glad I grew up in Germantown and decided to stay and do my sculpture here. And I am so happy to finally have studios for other artists in my building which is what I envisioned when we bought it in 1981. I'm not finished yet.
