Mounted shell sculptures

Just figured out ( with the help of metal master James DeMartis) how to mount my shell sculptures on recycled marble trophy blocks. I flattened the ends of rods and epoxied them to the backs of the sculptures. The existing holes in the marble blocks were filled with epoxy and I stuck the rods into the epoxied holes. Paid hardly anything for the marble and they make great weights for the stands.

    These are awesome, Tim – what a terrific idea for the marble bases; they really look nice with the shells. ~ Julie 🙂

    Thanks. I can’t tell you how much I’ve been wanting to do this. It gives you a whole new way of looking at them. A friend gave me the idea and I had the bases. It was just figuring out how to do. It’s harder than you think. Glad you like them. I have a large collection of much larger ones I have to do.
