one more fun piece

This piece started with of a motorcycle exhaust clamp. I filled it with cement (later painted blue), attached a cutout (from a redwood picket), drilled a few holes, attached 2 blue marbles, and 2 crystals (from an old chandelier). Then I mounted that assembly to a piece of polished cement and a recycled redwood post cap.

Certainly is a nice looking piece of work, but I just want to say also, that you must put loads of thought into the naming of your sculptures. They describe the work to a "T".

Nice going Robert!!!!

Wonderful, again!!
I am wondering, though, do you draw out what you have in mind and then find or make the pieces to fit, or do you have the pieces that just "come together" when you are fiddling with them and you think "ah ha!"?
