Light Catchers

As I did not have anything that I needed to do in the garage-studio today - I decided to use a few of the bits and pieces I have on the table to make a couple of Light Catchers.

If you recall my Light Catchers are whimsical assemblage pieces that sit on a window ledge and catch the sunlight and reflect it into the room through vintage crystals.

As you can see from the photos below I started with two piles of stuff;  which after cleaning, sanding cutting and drilling etc became more attractive piles.

One pile became a piece that would appeal to  people who like tools.

I think this piece still needs adjustment - it is too high - so I will get to that over the weekend - I hope. And the other has a Steampunkish nautical theme; but will be revealed at a later date after the assembling is finished

Fiona tells me that the nachos is ready and the wine has breathed - I'm out of here.


  1. Great concept and beautiful execution. Always inspiring to see you turn an idea into a finished work of art.

  2. This is so cool. I can't even work out where most of the parts came from in the pile!
