A bit of a polish and a few crystals

After all the 'work-work' and 'on the block' jobs were complete today I managed to get into the studio to put the finishing touches to eight of the pieces in my Light Catcher Series.

As you can see from the photos below I have decided to use chain to hang the crystals - I think it works with the mechanical-industrial nature of the pieces. The Light Catchers were photographed sitting on a shelf in my studio hence the shelf bracket appearing in the shots.

So the pieces are pretty well ready for market - I will probably take them to the gallery over the coming weekend. One additional quirky thing happened as I attached the crystals. In the piece that has the rusted steam gauge there was a circular concave about 25mm in diameter. I wondered if a crystal would fit into that space - no go with the first couple I tried but hey presto on the third go the crystal simply clicked into place like it was made for it. It really didn't even need fixing but to be sure I put four small dots of glue on corners. I think it adds a bit more mystery to the piece.
