it glows

i only had a tea candle to put in this to show the effect of the holes/screen

wow time is flying and i can't seem to keep caught up.  i took last friday off from the house thing and today i'm taking off....maybe even a few more days.  its hard work, i knew it would be and its really hot now.  the crew is going in earlier now..like 6am.  i've been a night person for weeks....i'm hoping there is work i can go do later in the day or early evening when electricity is running thru the place. its a big job and i need supervision and help so who knows, i can only try and do what i can.  its good/bad for my ego.  always lessons to learn.

in my own art world, i've been trying to replenish the candle holders that have been selling in my etsy shop with a renewed vigor.  a friend gave me a killer cool pipe that has square holes in it with a brass screen over it and the candles when lit glow thru it.  gonna put some up in my shop soon, here is a preview:


one side has this vertical silverish melt look to it on the screen
and here are some 'normal' ones hot off the press

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…

dairy delight

I was perusing craigslist and saw this:

Disassembling antique barn..
All interior components that ran dairy farm.
Silo made from Ceramic Blocks. Many different uses for the ceramic blocks.
2 sets Hay hooks.
Cow stantion.
Watering bowls.
Cow dividers.
Louden Hay Dryer app. 1940's
Block and Tackle Pulleys

I started SALIVATING. I checked the site out they linked to and saw it was an antique type store/house and worried they might be off the charts expensive. Not even sure they had what I want, but those clocks and hay shelves I made from the watering bowls and hay dryer equipment are to me, precious materials and I want MORE even if I have to buy them. I'm starting to get excited, so far the emails come back saying yes, they are those bowls that I want. Yes, the picture I emailed showing the hay things I have are indeed what he has. He has about FORTY of the cow bowls at a price I can live with, my one concern is they aren't rusty or crusty enough since the ones I…
