Pump One progress

Sculpture: Pump One is almost complete. The cedar base is ready and now attention shifts, to the pump.
The pump was manufactured in Brantford, Ontario. I was not able to confirm the exact date of manufacture, I can estimate it though that is was made after 1930 and before 1950.

Having been outside for many years it was corroded badly. I did an initial sandblast and followed that up with a wire brush. Being cast, it came out with a fantastic texture once finished.
