If you collect glass insulators, check out this great garden art/junk pic from Dancing Oaks Nursery in Oregon.

Very nice. That would be great with bottles too. I have a bunch of insulators that I got cheap at a yard sale, plus some others a friend gave me just waiting to be used. Not to mention my blue bottle collection. I don't weld, wish I could find something like this!

RE: Glass Insulators & Rust

Very cool.

Kathy, could you use a heavy wire of some kind & go around each piece of rebar so they all stayed in place? I love the 1st pic of the 7. The center of that star is beautiful also the gazing blue ball-love it! The circle thing with all the wire squiggles is cool too. TFS Jan

Would PVC work?? You could use some of that Krylon Paint for plastic and paint it any color you wanted I would think

You could also pound rusty pipes into the ground to avoid welding. Might not be as stable or perfect looking, but still cool.
