Is that a stove front, boy they made some beauties back in the day...I think of you and Mark when I'm out antiquing and see beautiful ironwork like this.

Look like lace - I love the detail that used to go into every day items.

Sherry said...

Wow, that's beautiful. We use something like that in front of our fireplace when it's not in use.

The iron is leaving such an intricate shadow on the wall. I like how we don't see the art of the iron, yet the complexity of the shadow replicates the original design...

Cassie said...

I like this shadow a lot. Almost spooky.

Jen said...

I see a touch of lace from this hard iron shadow.
Happy SSS to you!

Where do you find such beauties? I do hope your plans to incorporate it into a gate eventuate - I'd love to see the results.

Sturdy but delicate at the same time. Ooh, a gate, eh? Very cool!

Hey Harriet said...

Love those intricate shadows and what a great idea to incorporate it into a gate! You crafty clever thing you! Be sure to share pics of the completed project :)

High Desert Diva said...

Yeah well...I've had it for at least 18 months and it hasn't transformed itself into a gate yet. Might be a while...
