Yes, I've been around. Its been a busy winter. A few health issues.
Life ...etc...etc... How are you? Bring your statues in for the winter?
Did you see my egg with the gals face looking up? I posted it somewhere maybe last summer.
I am having a bath remodel and used the samples of lass tile to glue to a piece of PVC pipe 2 1/2 " dia. I pounded a rebar into the ground and threaded the pipe over it .the Sparklie Garden Spike is about 7 feet tall.
The top is made by Fuzing garbage bags together with an iron.
I also added any colored plastic like Fritos bags,coffee bags( some are gold) and anything plastic with good color.
I make a flat sheet and then shape it into a cylinder. Took tucks in the top and added fringed plastic to the bottom. Bird seed came in a purple decorated bag.
I made a fringed piece for the top out of red coffee bags 8 o'clock comes in a nice red.I use Goop Household glue and glued the top on.
the glass tiles.. did you have problems keeping the 'square' since gluing on a round pipe? Any special glue for the glass tiles...did you butt the corners of the tile or have you sealed the corners with anything?
here is some pottery stuck on some rebar - not as clever as yours or as colorful
No filling in on the glass tile,tiles were 1" sq.
I just spread a column of glue on the pipe and let it set a few mins while I glued the backs of about 10 tiles.GOOP is a glue that works best when 2 surfaces are glued and joined I would press while listening to my currant fave,Phillip Glass. He wrote the music for the movei "The Hours"
I've resurrected Burt Bacharrach (butchered that spelling didn't I?) and I have been listening to Kanye West who (whom??) I think is a musical genius (but can use a change of lyrics.) Also his cousin John Legend --that is all the smooth stuff. For a more country blues or mountain sound Nikko Case and Gillian Welsh. I can't hardly find music that I don't like --except for Big Band.
