I keep meaning to share with you a new piece of art that we recently acquired. This playful and beautiful column was created by friend and uber-talented artist Victoria Copeland. She created the gorgeous mosaic column and then left it for Eric and I to decide what we should top it with (garden ball, bird bath, manatee statue, etc.)
To complete the piece Eric and I found a birdbath, the kind that hangs from chains. We removed the chains and I made some dangles from clay and attached them to the holes that had once been connected to the chain. Down the center if the column we stuck a rod into the ground to ensure that Wyoming's winds won't knock it down.
We placed some stones into the basin of the birdbath and now we are all set. Isn't it gorgeous?! It is so whimsical and fun to look at, there is always some new detail to discover.
It is great to extend our love of art into the outdoors, beyond the walls of our home. Do you decorate your outside?
