Joseph Becker from Ion Ecobuilding commissioned 6 brackets for a living roof. The brackets mount on the rafters at the end of the roof line. They allow for a 1" airspace gap under a cedar planter box. I will put pictures up of the brackets on the roof once they are installed.
Here is a profile view...
and a front view featuring a tiger named Noah...
I had fun stacking them in different formations.
Also had a visit from John Reese, a stone carver. John's website is featured in the links.
Here is another one of John's pieces. It is a big snake fighting a man. It looks like the snake has the upper hand.
I practiced squaring pieces of re-bar, tapering them and bending them into this shape. I was thinking I could make belt buckles out of these, but I fit them together and like the way they feel as a single unit.
I'm inspired to do some pieces with lots of similar style shapes fit together into a mobile or structure.
