Last week I was scouring Michaelian and Kohlberg’s warehouse for pieces to use in the Mansion in May show house terrace and I fell totally in love with a group of cart wheels. They had amazing iron detail which I love on just about anything and a graphic quality that made them very contemporary even though they were very old.
These wheels can stand on their own as sculpture, can be hung on a wall or be suspended from a pergola as a candelabra with led pillars lighting the way.
I’ve always liked millstones and thought they were fine additions to gardens in paths, as fountains or even as free standing sculpture. I never considered cart wheels as being just as useful and beautiful though. (I think it might be the folksy wagon wheel thing that I don’t like that kept that door closed.)
So many ideas, so little time.
