Iron man gets to work

The Ajijic Plaza remodeling project is finally back on track, with local iron sculptor Ramon Heredia Lares picking up his blowtorch early last week to begin work on the artistic railing that will wrap around the central kiosko bandstand. Although he is barely getting started with the basic framework, his sketches show images of ducks, herons, pelicans and other elements of Lake Chapala’s rich bird life that are focused in the design. The artist expects it will take him another two months to complete the project, including finishing touches to be painted in pastel shades.
