Quirky garden assemblages

Today I finished the last of my assemblages for the garden - the last one was a broad bowled Avian Font as A friend of our has requested the opportunity to check a couple out before they head off to market.

Not a lot of time today to make stuff as Fiona and I joined Christine and a couple of Sister City folk to set up the exhibition of the Japanese environmental artist. And buying the last of the bits and pieces for the installation of the resin work that will come from the children's workshop on Monday.

This is the font I finished.

This smaller font it quite cute with its silver-plated bowl.

Who said you couldn't find another used for a rusted weight lifting bar - just needs to be joined to a couple of other found objects to become a plant hanging stand.

Some things can just be interesting objects to be placed and found in the garden - they of course could have plant hung from them as well.

I'll now send some photos to our friend to see which Avian Font appeals.
