Conversation with the vet:
Babe, what do you call this?
Uh… a lamppost.
I know it’s a lamppost, but what do you call it now?
It’s still a lamppost.
But, what is it? It’s got to be called something else.
So, what do you call a lamppost that looks a little different than other lampposts?
Drum rolls or eye rolls, we agreed on “artsy” as the adjective.
It’s just a lamppost, but… he can call it an artsy lamppost if he so pleases.
Give me time, sweet man. That rusty ol’ pole won’t be the first clue of an artist in residence.
I did give it a fresh coat of paint and pounded a wooden spoon paddle into the ground beside the base to help wedge it up a bit straighter. It’s the stained glass inserts that make him think it needs a new name. They were fun to make but took awhile as I had sold my glass grinder and my hands kept cramping up with bones locked in a shadow play duck position.
Photos snapped along the way:
Had to revamp this plan… clear glass was too thick for my came.
New plan… going with the blues. This is a “use whatcha got” project.
Forget the Dremel… this glass file works GREAT!
Hand cramps: with a flashlight and sheet, we could call that a duck.
Putting it together… yeah, it’s been awhile.
And I couldn’t find my plastic dodahs for the horseshoe nails.
All done… surprised it glows oranges.
Thanks for reading!
