251/365 - Mystic Theme - Windchime (hahaha)*

There is nothing like the synergy of a brassy green patina and concrete to excite the eye (my eye).
Look at the "splotch" of green stain! Wow!!!
Sorry for the blurry shots, the wind was blowing when I took these shots!
Lesson Learned: Sometimes, things that defy their intended "purpose" find an even better purpose for being - that applies to people too!

* Many years ago when I was much more into sculpting, I fashioned a set of concrete and brass "windchimes" to hang from a then young tree. Maybe once, in a violent storm, did the heavy orbs "chime". But - after all those years of patiently waiting to touch each other, the creation matured and became a pretty nice thing to "just look at".
nynkeb But still, when I look at these I feel a strong urge to put the first one in motion... ;)

karmankwarner what a cool idea. I want a Newton's Cradle in my front yard made from bowling balls and an old swing set. :)

????? · 2011-09-08: 08:36
ArtBee What a great conversation piece they must be..... I would like to see the whole picture of the tree and sculptures to get a little more perspective....
ArtBee · 2011-09-08: 08:36
Keryl I think you would need some gale force winds to make your cement balls clang together!
Nice shots and we should all repurpose things.

atszabo That is my kind of wind chime, a silent one!
atszabo · 2011-09-08: 08:56

onlyricky · 2011-09-08: 09:37
SheriJ Maybe a little less cement and they could clang and clatter against ecah other during a breeeze?? I still think they are cool!!
SheriJ · 2011-09-08: 09:49

nataliemanco great windchimes Dan, they are actually really pretty
nataliemanco · 2011-09-08: 17:34
lukesmom You made this?? It is way cool! Very nice to look at. Can you move the orbs closer together so they clack or chime? I like it!!
lukesmom · 2011-09-08: 20:54
DancingDolphin PERFECT wind chimes in my opinion! I hate the noise... even took down some at a neighbors once as they were gone and the chimes were keeping me awake. :-) I know, I'm a grump. But you see, for this reason, I LIKE your wind chimes. Silence is golden!
DancingDolphin · 2011-09-08: 21:05
lookagain Those are so cool, Dan....I wonder what they sound like when they do "clang" together?
lookagain · 2011-09-08: 22:10
liveandletlive I think they look very cool! And boy, Jacki sure is a grumpypants about the windchimes isn't she (I'm hoping somehow she'll see this)

Jarvo Thanks Dan, I learned something there. How did I get to be so old without ever hearing the word patina before? Thank you.
Jarvo · 2011-09-09: 17:40
