pond-filter upgrade

biofilter1

biofilter2

Since my 4 Goldfish decided to multiply several times this summer my biological trickle filter (made in 2012) ended up being much too small in volume and too hard to clean. So here’s the new one with 4 cutlery drainers stacked containing various biological filter materials (lava stones, perlite, ceramic tubes and Zeolite at the bottom), housed in a flowerpot and exit with a shower drain. All still working with the original solar pump system. Still working on a lid (instead of the splash hood from the kitchen).


rockpool life

watching life in a rock pool next to the beach. The crab is actually under water but the pool was so clear it doesn’t show. Sorry about the shaking, that was me free hand.

horse baroque

saddle 5

another up-cycle baroque project. My robot horse (from the rubbish heap), 2 worn out Desigu*l bags, bits of wood and plexiglass cut off pieces, an old belt all together make up my new side table for a large portion of my painting and drawing utensils.

The saddle itself was inspired by an 18th century Japanese saddle seen on the net.


more kayak

nothing like a kayak, a swim, and a sketch in November.
