Bricks and things

I added 6 pictures to my photobucket account rather than post them individually:I'm getting sooo lazy. The pictures were taken with my MP3 player so don't judge them for quality.

Better than a pile of bricks - and the glass adds some needed color.

Yes, the orange ball is a refinished bowling ball mounted on top of a single cast iron foot (from an old stove). The brick is a painted concrete brick, Anubis is a metal silhouette and the star is a trinket.

So Robert, did you hold up the local brick yard? You've been a busy guy...certainly not lazy! All of your "orbs" are very cool! Anubis is great looking and I think my favorite is the one that looks like it's made from pulley wheels. TFS!

I Like them all!!! Especially the frog prince and the egyptian dog guy? and the stacked thing that looks like a space needle! Great suff! I just bought 4 cast aluminum camels at a fleamarket and now am inspired to incorporate them into something stacked!!!

I'm running out of adjectives to describe your work ! It's clever and artistic , to say the least !
I wish I had some of your energy and creativity (8-0)

What I would really really like to see are pictures of "your stash". I'm imagining mountains of "parts" .
We have an artist in my area that makes things like you do. You can drive through his property and admire things as you go. You know what I admired the most ??? This huge mountain of stainless steel "things" behind his garage ! LOL

It had to be 20' high and 60' around. I would die for a stash like that ! Can you take a pic of yours ?

I always love your 'stuff' and the things you make with it!
Like the sound the gong/bell and you have.
I have several propane tanks that Bill cut for me before he died, and I have been procrastinating (and pulled muscle, sicatic nerve and other various things) about
getting them painted and hung. Hope mine sound as good as yours.
Keep up the good work!

Nice work Robert. Is that some hyperturfa? Looks like you have been very busy.
