quirky designs

Just a quick pop in to say hi, and share these pictures with you.  Our neighbour at the book shop is Guy Sterling, a quirky fun loving chap with an infectious laugh.  He makes the most amazing things out of scrap metal, welding and bending, twisting and hammering until he has created art out of what was once a pile of scrap.  Every weekend when I work at the shop, the first thing I do is pop over for a visit.  I asked Guy if I could take some pics and post them on my blog - I think he wants to start a blog too!



Can you see the mielies in the background - there is a maze in the maize. The other day a young man borrowed a table and two chairs from Sterling and took them into the middle of the maze, and suprised his girlfriend with a marriage proposal.


Finally a few pictures of my art in the shop.



......and how it all fits in

  2. What an inspiring neighbour you have at your shop. Amazing what can be done to what others concider scrap. Your art looks great in that white shelf.
    Clare, you would be welcome any time. How fun that could be. South Africa this time of year would perhaps suit me well too. Dreams!!
