You've made my day with your lovely sculpture. I recently had similar idea for a concrete totem pole with pieces that can be rearranged vertically, but of course not as delicate as your beads. Just one suggestion: if you sell a piece like this, you should consider using non-corrosive stainless steel for the metal parts, instead of the iron rebar, unless you want a rust effect.

I appreciate your comments. I did spray paint the rebar black with a rustoleum spray .. we’ll see how that works. The frame was out all winter and still looked fine...so far, so good. I would love to see what you do with your concrete totem!

WOW! I absolutely LOVE this! Such a great idea and it's so aesthetic. I wish I had thought of it myself or had a firing kiln to make some of my own and steal your idea. This is really something! ♥️ ♥️ ♥️ ⚡
 
Geez! Don't know how I missed this, terrific !
Somebody ought to have alerted me. (you know who)

Hmm, I just thought of a pale imitation that I may try.
Thanks for the inspiration.

I would also like to see what you produce. It would be nice to have more sculptures here to discuss, but I guess it's not surprising that the painters outnumber the sculptors in Creative Spark.
