Ingenuity and creativity in the neighborhood!December 8, 2014 12:00 am
This past weekend, a gentleman in the neighborhood walked in to the store and bought four or five of our tillandsias. He told me he had quite a collection, and that he had cast one of them in brass. REALLY? By now, my interest was very much peaked, and I asked him to send me a photo of his creative plant displays. Having dabbled some in the lost-wax method myself, I was curious to see how it might have turned out. Well, as he’s in the hood, he kindly did far better than that – today he came back, and he brought his brass tillandsia and another one in for me to see. His mode of displaying them was so fun, I simply had to share!
This is the one he cast in brass, displayed in an old oiler from an industrial engine. So cool!
Here you can see his actual handiwork a little better. It is only about 1.5 inches tall. I was amazed at how detailed it came out – he did a really good job!
This one was my favorite! A part of a piston from a 1965 Indy car! What is your favorite way to display your Tillandsias?
