Just read a cool blog from Sarah, editor of the blog named A Beach Cottage, coastal vintage lifestyle. The title of her blog that caught my eye is called :
A QUICKIE VINTAGE PEELY WHITE PAINT BEACH COTTAGE TREASURE! OH YEAH, COME TO MUMMA
This piece is actually made of 16 gauge welded scrap iron. I designed this sculpture for my studio on Daufuskie (see photo with a younger me in overalls)and finally had enough people ask about it to where I decided to design it for the wall and instead of the post in the ground like the one I have at the studio. Of course, the wall sculpture is a fraction to ship too because it is 7 pieces instead of one large one. The photo w/ the red wall is courtesy of collectors Gib & Lindsay Daniel of Lindsay Daniel Architecture in Charlotte, NC . They have created the perfect back drop for this piece. I love how the red and the rust play off of each other.
