For Uta and anyone else who loves rusty metal…. (see also Uta’s blog http://uta-mooney.blogspot.com for more treasures).
Engine part? Maybe…
An early 20th Century thingymajig.
I could eat this, it’s so delicious!
And the colours!
Sumptious stippled strata
A row of beauties. Half dipped in melted candle wax.
Nails, some dipped in wax, some with wax and Chinese paper wrappings.
Detail of a door lock. (avec wax, bien sur!)
I just love this!
Remember 35mm film? This is an old photo of some arrangements I did of parts of the rusty metal collection in 1997. A Rustyoldsaurus?
Gosh, 11 years ago… where did the time go? Anyway, this was fun.
Got the neighbours gossiping anyway!
Metal pieces arranged on shores of Lake Coniston, 1998.
Back to 2008 and one of my favourite pieces.
This one now lives in a flower trough, with…
with… this chappy.
All in a row!
Through the square window…
A heap of treasures.
A giant’s comb.
Bit off more than I could chew?
Couldn’t leave out me chickens, even though they’re a ‘modern’ addition!
Not sure what the two holed oojah is, but I love the look of it.
Much to the amusement of neighbouring kids, I hung some bits from trees in 1998, (only temporarily, they came back home with me… (the rusty metal bits, not the kids!)
Well, there’s more photos, but I think you get the idea by now…
And remember Uta’s collection… take a peek, see her beautiful fisherman’s cage that she found recently.
If you reached this far, then I guess you must be a fellow rusty metal fan!
