Vases!  Actually, vase holders.

 

DSC03260webThis is the first look – just assembled this in the shop today.   I still have to put the finish on this.

 

This assignment was to make holders for these tall vases (tallest is 48″), made of thick heavy clay.  This is to go into a very windy spot, there was no way these would stand up on their own.

Material is mostly 1/2″ x 1 1/2″ steel.  Center post is about 2″ hexagonal, forged down and spiraled at the top.

It was assembled today for a fit check.  Now it’s all apart so that I can start painting it.
