Lydia's Penguin

A Rock Hopper Penguin created for a lady who loves these little characters.
The body uses an empty gas bottle (I say empty, but if you need to do any welding on one of these, please remember to refill it with water beforehand, or you risk going into orbit directly!)

The last of the current batch of horses, I plan to keep this one in it's natural rust.

I have been a bit lazy recently about adding to my blog, but I'm still making the usual subjects. In an effort to use up most of an increasingly large pile of scrap, I have created another life-sized horse. It is the only way of using up bigger pieces of metal, and now my challenge is moving them, as they each weigh in at around half a ton!

Rustic Wall Sconces

Just for a change I have created a range of candle holders from old garden implements; they each use a standard 40mm candle, but can take a nightlight too. The variety of tools is quite wide, just needing a vertical handle to be suitable. Most of them use a bracket with a single screw for the mounting.
