pond goes baroque

new pond 3

when renovating our bathroom we finally managed to take out that silly Jacuzzi tub, transport it down to the terrace and replace the old flowerpot pond there. All it needed now was a new surround covering the weird shape of it. Marine plywood painted with 2K boat paint, Lino print for that baroque feel, and two waterproof solar LEDs found on sale.

the skirt is marine ply on the straight bit and Styrofoam ceiling trim for the curved part.

now all I have to do is wait for the water lillies to come up and the iris to grow back to their previous size. (and maybe paint that water spout)

 


horse’s new friend

horseandparrot

the horse has acquired a new friend over Christmas, a dutch speaking parrot making a lot of noise.

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.


going baroque

kegeltisch standup

up-cycling materials that have been hanging around for 15 years: 3 bowling pins discarded by our local bowling alley, one leg and picture frame from *kea rejects, part of Chinese table cloth and an aerial support. Resulting in a laptop/side table height adjustable from stand up to sit down in arm chair.

I must have been overwhelmed by my baroque urge in the process because this was the initial design:
