I have become a little obsessed with yard art. We now have this big, wild yard and I love the idea of wandering through the weeds and discovering stuff. You've seen my lights. One of these days I should probably take photos and give you the grand tour of my outdoor tchotchkes.
About 5 years ago we were selling our own garden art at a garden show and the vendor next to us was selling concrete spheres, decorated in a variety of ways.I really loved these big orbs for some reason and have wanted to make one since then. Several months ago I picked up a round, glass globe from a light fixture at the Goodwill Store and last week when Ray was mixing concrete for another project, I asked him to fill the glass globe with concrete.
I put the ball into a plastic bag and then set it into a plastic container. You can see the tip of Sofia's shoe as she waited for the first blow.
Here it is with all the glass removed. I like it as it is, even with the imperfections, but I have an idea for adding to it. I'll post a photo when I'm done with it.
