now i remember another reason i stopped blogging...i have been dickering around with trying to upload 2 photos with links and captions for longer than i should.  much easier to just do it elsewhere.
lets try again....

industrial salvage decor
as i said, i upped the ante a bit on the utensil holders.  when i find a beautiful pipe i am not opposed to making the original simple pencil holders but now that i am in the green a bit more i am inclined to have the machine shop cut me metal discs for the bottoms (i monster weld them to inside/bottoms)  this also enables me to weld it where i want in the pipe giving the illusion of a very tall/deep utensil holder when in fact the disc is 4" down so the pencils do not get swallowed up in pipe abyss.

 And my newest ones are fun!  There is a space underneath them with another small pipe for storage of keys/money/usb cards or whatever you want to have out but hidden from view.  I have one in red/brown and blue brown.

pencil cups with mini catch all dishes that fit underneath for hiding stuff

so there you have it.  i have spent 20 minutes doing something over and over again because photos kept jumping around or blogger giving me errors.  perhaps blogging is dead lol.
anyhow.  back to work!

Great blog. Your art is better than many non-self-taught artists (like me.) I'm even jealous a little. Best of luck, Linda.

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…
