Two Men of Florence - In the shops

Here's a photographic glimpse of what's been going on in the shops

Candelabra under construction. One of four.

Candle Walls waiting to move on stage. 498 Electric candles on 20 dimmers. A lot of wiring!

The turntable set up in the shop for testing - and two days of rehearsal

A chair - recently built, freshly gold leafed, getting new upholstery

Chair getting webbing

More chairs - waiting their turn
We've built two of these, put new backs on eight, and applied gold leaf and upholstery to all. In case your wondering - that's 13,000 square inches of gold leaf.

And why?

for Alvin, of course
