Okay guys sculptures 47 and 48 on the way to 50.
Anyway here are the two additional snails from my collection. I know the pictures are terrible.
Photobucket
This guy is 5 feet tall and made from a bicycle wheel, two lids from scented candles, piece of PVC pipe, an old iron crow-bar, two marbles, to lamp finals, two crystals, and some scrap metal.

Photobucket
While this little guy is mounted on a trophy base (a ts find), the "shell" was cut from the most horrible table lamp ever, the body is a defunct windshield wiper blade, and the head uses two crystals from a chandelier.

Hope you enjoy these garden critters.
Robert

Love the tall small, he's going for the tender stuff up top!! Well, the lamp might have been a dud but your snail sure isn't, nice save! And crystal eyes to boot!! Jan

Your imagination still astounds me! I love them both but the 5 footer would sure be impressive in the garden!

RE: garden snails

thank you Robert fo rposting your page. It was so much fun to look at your amazing art again.
If you have talked about the auction or selling it, I missed it. I'm wondering how it went?

RE: garden snails

So many unique and wonderful things are made by Robert,
but the snails and dragonflies have always been a particular favorite of mine. If I lived near him, I'd be over there begging him to sell me some, and probably a lot of other stuff. LOL. I love Robert's creations and admire
his many talents.

hugs, Karen
