Stormy weather

Winter storms resulted in a bumper crop of driftwood at the beach house and a carpet of wind-blown twigs in the backyard, so I decided to use the harvest of sticks to modify an old light fitting. 

I used jute twine to bind the metal light frame, then more twine, knots and a spot of glue to attach each stick to the circular frame.


An hour or three later, and I have myself a tasty textured pendant light, all thanks to some stormy weather.

Flotsam pendant light
