10 Minute Sculpture

So I rewarded myself for weeding by putting up a quick sculpture this afternoon. I'm sure I'm not the first to think of this, but take a stick of rebar, scrunch it down into the ground and thread with terracotta pots. Viola! You've got yourself a ten minute sculpture and a great little high-rise apartment building for spiders (please wear gloves). A bit of Brancusi provencial, no?
The material at the base of the pots are bits of tumbled ceramic from Building Resources. They are a non-profit that encourages the reuse of building materials. And they're just super nice, passionate people to boot.


  1. great look! wouldn't these be terrific mossed? i can never pass up an old terra cotta pot and have them everywhere. i'm going to definitely give this a try. terra cotta is funny, sometimes it mosses up and sometimes it sits bald forever. ls

  2. Thanks, Linda! How can anyone not love moss? I wonder if some terracotta pots have some kind of finish on them that prevents the moss from growing? It seems that I tend to see this on older pots that have been stuck in the shady back corner of the yard for too long.
