There is mean't to be lots of blocks of varying sizes, but I had to leave it at just one. It's relatively large and heavy, and took alot of bags of concrete to make, so space in the studio would be an issue. But it doesn't work aswell by itself. I was too impatient to make it hollow, and so it's a solid block. I underestimated the amount of concrete I would need to fill the space, and completely ran out. So to bulk it up I filled it with 2 tins of tomato soup! Not for any Warhol reason, it was the only thing in the studio that I didn't mind loosing in a giant block of concrete. At least it's always there for an emergency if I'm ever a starving artist, I can always crack it open and have a feed!
