sneak peek

so here is the obvious.  pipe votive candle holders!  i still need to test them out (burn candles in them).  the red pipes were big enough i could buy a glass votive holder so those are good to go.  the smaller/thinner ones are going to be just candles in there so i want to see how they fair.  the all aluminum pipes, i'm thinking it will be a breeze to scrape out the wax, in the other pipes i have no idea.  i suppose one could put aluminum foil under the candle....i have no clue yet.  today i'm putting finishing touches on them (sanding the bottoms to smooth them and even any outer edges) and will test a few out tonight.  i like the idea of this.  i like it alot.  what do you think?

I really like these..I enjoy your creative work..I am also one who goes thru dumpsters to find things to use and make a new life for it.

paula said…
a hot item indeed kim...thanks for your positive feedback on this, makes me think i should have made more last week!!! :)

This is a good idea, Paula. You cut them shot and they weigh less. This means if you sell them online the shipping fee will be less and more attractive. I love the red and the yellow ones in particular, rustic and artsy.

I have no idea about the bottom. I have big candles in my house too and no need for the holders. They can stand on their own. I put them in a big tray to protect the floor and it is easy to carry around in case I want to move them to a different corner. Your customers can do the same, I think, putting the bottomless holders in a tray. Don't know if the wax will seep out the bottom.

But have fun at the fair this weekend. Oh, at the fair maybe you can bring a little tray along for the display. Heee... methinks;)

Friday New Art Finds.  ha.  I'm posting it early because my blog needs something on it other than ME.   I present to you Louis Pons.  Born in Marseilles, France in 1927 and apparently still going strong.  I have little to no information on this artist, he appears to be elusive on the net.  I recently watched a strange little movie called 'The Gleaners and I' by Agnus Varda.  She had a blip on him and I set to searching for images or information online only to come up with a small wikipedia blip and a few sites containing his work.
No matter, it's enough just to see his work.  This site if you translate it, appears to have the most information of any:
Primary studies at Marseilles, school of the Carthusian monks.
School of the Trades, Endoume, Marseilles. He learns the trade from fitter bu…
