From necessity and will the idea was conceived

but nature inspired it’s beautiful form.

With pencil on paper was the concept revealed,

in fire and heart the reality was borne.

With eye and with mind the work was formed

from iron by hand a work of art is born.

  1. What a wonderfully creative post…..from imagination birthed into the world. Beautiful….dare I ask how much it cost?

      Thank you,the project was a great opportunity in many respects. My Mother always taught me it was vulgar to talk about money, probably why I see so little of it! :-)
