Parcel of Goodies

Otis surveys just some of the lovely old tins my friend and dealer from Found in Tokyo sent me.
Look who made himself a heavenly bed with all the bubble wrap too.
They're European but I've never seen these hexagonal moulds before and I have the whole set of sizes here. They have the proportions of a big nut without a bolt. They're all beautifully tarnished and if you remember my post about the home workshop books - some of these look hand soldered. I have to find time (how?) to make some special new lamps (not cakes!) with these.

  1. I hadn't fully appreciated how big they were until I saw Otis next to them! Huge nuts and bolts for giants!! Looking forward to seeing some new creations with these. Thanks for your reply re: lampshade. Madeliene, I wouldn't even know where to start if I had to make one myself!! ;-) Teehee - had just thought it worth asking. I only rent, so for now a lampshade fitting would be better, easier - and would save me having to get an electrician in.

    Have put a new montage of Ben on my blog - you'll have to print it out for your mum as the latest update.
