A cute sculpture I made a few days ago....   Salvaged steel parts including bearings, bolts, chain, gears, a plow disk, & glass insulators.  I think it's a nice addition to the entry :)

And...a power company with a scrapyard??? That sounds like BIG fun!

Thanks for sharing your art with us!

greencolleen---I just hung the insulators from a loop; they come just like that; each glass piece is attached to the steel & has a loop & pin: all ready to go :)---the power company has the coolest scrap yard, btw---

vangogh_sister----yep, welding required: you should definately give it a try; it's lots of fun. And, if you have a husband/boyfriend: he will love all the tools that go with!

DownHomeDIY writes: Ok, this must "steel" the show as far as curb appeal in your neighborhood. This is cooler than ice cream as my kids like to say!
