My Orange Blossom Pagoda

tehutiJune 3, 2008

Okay so it's not actually an orange blossom but I had to call it something.

I posted this on the Garden Junk Forum but some members of trash to treasure might not go there.

The base of the pagoda is actually two automotive brake parts (a vented rotor and a brake drum), the glass is from a table lamp, the bricks came from the great charcoal kilns of Nevada (late 1800's), the top piece was part of a chandelier in HaroldÂs Club  Reno (got it at auction), and all the other parts are free weights (the bar, plates and end stops).

That's wonderful Robert. It must be quite heavy. Love the look. Lynn

That's talent. I really like the amber colored glass on top.

Wow. This is so, so cool. How did you put them all together? Are they on a rod or something?

I usually don't like lawn sculpture much but this is interesting!

andi956 the barbell bar was driven into the ground and everything was assembled on it.

Glad you find it interesting.
