and Bigger~

The image does not do justice to the true massive size of this large, heavy wind chime. The beach stone base weighs 45 lbs. Packing this for shipping will be an interesting challenge to face this weekend~ fun. For more information on this wind chime, Click Here.

For those who scanned my last post about my urge to create bigger and bigger works, I have to tell you that I did succumb: I made an even larger piece, pictured above. The idea was that it would go to the new gallery opening in town here in a couple of days. I wouldn't have to ship it. But I liked the piece so much, I could not resist taking some pictures and putting it on eBay~ mostly just to show off. Well, as luck would have it, it sold within a day, and now I get to pack it.

How relieved I was to discover the upper limit for shipping through the mail is 65 pounds. And even more relieved to discover the base stone I used weighs only(!) 45 pounds. That's great~ not only can I ship this work via regular mail, but I can make something even bigger! This work will ship in three boxes~ lots of packing fun.

I'm sorry for the new gallery~ this would have been a real treat for them to have. But I'll get down to the beach and find some super stones, and next week make an even bigger one for them. No crane needed yet~ but getting there!


  1. This is a beautiful piece of work here. And I just want to give you a shout out, as I am also from B.C.

  2. You should do what I'm about to do, Tim. Open your own store/gallery :)
